NEW PROJECTS

I started to work on a few new projects this year. My photographic approach is getting a bit more wider. For a while I have been feeling that I needed to overcome the limitations of the photography I have been doing for a while. I feel more open now - the reference to what has been "ça a été" is still essential for my photography. The first step was THE LIFESAVING MACHINES, now I follow up with SWEAT.
