What is your signature?
I love the spontaneity and honesty of photography. This is what I always try to bring out when i am shooting, both in fashion and in portrait.
Which picture made you think you were going to be a professional photographer?
The series « Mr and Mrs Woodman » by Man Ray, but also the portraits of Nusch Eluard.
The shooting you will never forget ?
Without any hesitation, the shooting of Marianne Faithfull while she was rehearsing in company of PJ Harvey.
What inspires you ?
I get inspired by many things. It could be un episode of Jackass or a stroll down the streets, that’s where I get the most surprised actually. I also go to all exhibitions..
What is the key of a successfull shooting ?
Simplicity, always !
Anything new going on ?
I can’t say much about it, but I am working on a project that I hope I can soon realise in Texas.
