This series was made the last two years, those pictures are made from 3 differents country that I went for different reason.
We have feeling with place and people by accident, love, friends, work. As a photographer i shoot in all this condition as part of my life.
In my photography the most important thing is to step aside for the benefit of the picture. I try that the emotion take the pictures, i am behind, the picture should be a meeting between emotion and reality.
The question I try to ask is what is the difference between intuition and representation? how come the reality is impossible to see and how come we are stranger in our own life, separate and dependant So I record my everyday life, «Winogrand use to say what the reality look like on a paper?», and Harry Callahan use to photograph is wife and children all is life, I record my wife,
my friends, my vacation, my assignment, everything without hierarchie, and the most simple way…
I don’t work with particular project or subject in advance, i make mysel the contact sheet, small print and after a while a serie come throught, one picture with another one.
