I was born in 1993 of French and Swiss parents. I lived in San Francisco the first seven years of my life before moving to Paris.
I have been living in Switzerland for the past five years where I have just graduated from the prestigious university of art and design school "Ecal" (École cantonale d'art de Lausanne). I graduated from a bachelor of visual communication specializing photography.
My childhood in California has influenced me and my work over the years, providing the main motivation for my creative process and a source of inspiration.
When I left America to move to Europe I wasn’t quite aware of what was happening but somehow I always thought we would move back there.
My father gave me my first camera when I was about ten years old and by then I would go back to San Francisco for the summer vacations every year. I started taking pictures of everything, both collecting and saving as much information as possible. It was a sort of security belt and means of control reflecting my fear that I would lose or forget everything that surrounded me that was important. I first used photography, therefore, as a kind of time capsule. Then I started working on compositions, atmospheres, documentary works, also working a lot with archives and vernacular photography. To me art was related in a way to the past and to story telling, always keeping a link with my family or with America.
