London-based photographer and art director originally from Paris, France.
I started shooting live music whilst studying for a BA in Design for Art Direction at London College of Communication (UAL) and have worked with an array of publications and clients.
With a penchant for rich colour palettes and high-energy, dynamic images of musicians and their audiences, my aim has been to document the London music scene, the places I care about and to explore the relationship between the stage and the performer.
I’ve also had the opportunity to exhibit my work over the years, with projects ranging from installations to short films. I was honoured to have two pieces of work selected for LCC’s Degree Show: my first short film, “The Invisibility Cloak”, a piece that deals with my health struggles for the first time, in order to raise awareness of ITP, a rare autoimmune blood disorder I’ve been living with for over 10 years; and my thesis, “Blackstar, Meaning, Interpretation and the concept of Authorship: To what extent does David Bowie’s ★ discuss and challenge the concept of authorship?”, exhibited as part of “Words Matter”.
Since graduating with 1st Class Hons in September 2019, I’ve taken the time to reflect on how I can move forward with my practice and approach my work in a more sustainable way for my health. I am currently working on two personal projects, influenced by memories, dreams, set design, fashion imagery, and of course, music.
