I started in the press photography profession at 24 years old, a revelation which may seem like a real eye-opener since it’s not so easy to make a name for oneself within it, and even less so as a woman.
It’s a magical universe where each encounter becomes a personal achievement.
The variety of events is a genuine source of culture and enrichment.
Photography works intimately within this setting, and its rewards are endless.

Tania Garbarski & Charlie Dupont
It was a very enjoyable meeting with Tania and Charlie, a couple of actors who are just the same in town as they are on set!
Quirky and connected to their audience online, they are incredibly down-to-earth, and they immediately formed a super interaction with the lens!
We carried out this photo shoot in Old Nice to mark the occasion of the new stageplay by Muriel Mayette-Holtz at the Nice National Theatre, ‘Feuilleton Goldini’.

Poetry, jazz and fantasy
I love poetry, jazz, and fantasy… so of course I could only like Enzo from the first moment we met.
She’s someone who is glowing in her musical world, where each moment is punctuated by those little notes which make all the difference!
Photographing her makes you truly happy, and it’s a team chemistry between us where she shines right through the lens through her simple and sleek beauty…
I love the way in which she gets to grips with the lighting and my shoot direction… Enzo is among those photogenic people where every session is a real pleasure.

The baby of the Monte-Carlo Ballet Company
A charming, disciplined, and ambitious young woman.
She recently joined the famous Monte-Carlo Ballet Company, a company led by the choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot.
Between classical and modern ballet, she has pulled off the extraordinary feat of making her passion her career!
Juliette remains a modern teenager who is open-minded and curious about life. I loved this little photo-shoot, and I must admit that she knew how to trick my lens by throwing herself around the town which saw her grow up: Menton

Charles et Emile Berling
A real bond
Far more than an encounter, it was the real father-son bond that immediately moved me.
Already performing, I had already been seduced by his performance in the play ‘Les Parents terribles’ by Cocteau, the first production at the Nice Theatre directed by the sumptuous Muriel Mayette-Holtz.
I have to admit I was thrown off by Charles; his career, his charisma… and obviously his charm!
This relationship between Charles and Emile – beyond a photo shoot – takes you back to your relationships within your own family, and there is nothing more reassuring than when you think to yourself that love operates on set as it does in life, even in the lives of artists!

Actress and director of the Nice National Theatre
One of the most beautiful encounters of my career. This is when art goes hand in hand with humanity, kindness, and shared experiences… I have rarely known such a beautiful person, and one who has had such a career! She is a crazy talent… a fragile and sensitive soul, but also so tenacious in everything she turns her mind to… She’s the first woman to have led the French state theatre, la Comédie Française, well done!
Muriel exposes herself naturally in front of the lens. She is generous, radiant, honest, and unreserved…

Maria de Meideros
Utterly impressed, I was immediately captivated by Maria… in some of the most unusual of circumstances!
This wonderfully charismatic woman unveiled some of the more sensitive, moving and indeed surprising aspects of her personality to me.
She is an accomplished artist who transforms everything she touches into a work of art!
Link to: Bernar Venet, conceptual artist
Great through his talent and success, Venet excels through his generosity. He stands head and shoulders above the rest through his international career in modern art. I was seduced by his presence and his environment in Le Muy, in the French department of Var on the Côte d’Azur, a perfect setting to expose his works.
His sculptures have found a way to impose themselves in urban spaces, with artistic performances living up to the man I was lucky enough to meet.
He opened up in front of my lens with a lot of kindness and professionalism.
