I take a photo with a camera, and perform transformations on a smartphone.  The result must have meaning, a soul… When I create, I feel like the soul of a DJ, recomposing a new score from existing songs. The starting point is real and recognizable, then it derails in the right direction to become a poetic and magical graphic creation, which gives emotion to the spectator!

I started photography in the dark of a film photography laboratory. I always experimented; Polaroids modified by pressure, collages… And then in 2020, thanks to an encounter with the possibilities of digital tools, I became a «photographer» to revisit reality with humor and poetry, while preserving an essential element of reality in each of my works.
