His way of photographing stretch the codes of photojournalism, questioning them, exploring the theatricality in the ordinary. His work tries to understand where the line between reality and representation lies.

Photojournalism carries a question mark, which contemplation leads to an interrogation of its truthfulness.
LE BAL has also invited six artists, among them choreographers, dancers, performers who will base their creations on an image: reflecting and analysing it they will be part of a first edition cycle called Watch and Act.
