From science to human relations
I was very curious as a child, and I was always reading scientific books. I discovered photography at 19, in London. From that moment on, I tried to improve myself while working as an extracurricular staff in Paris.
In 2003 and 2004, I volonteered with “Aie des Rêves”, in Guereo, Senegal, as a photographer. This organization aims to develop cultural exchange between french and senegal children and provides development assistance (mangrove reafforestation, beach cleaning…). After this, I organized several exhibitions in the 20th district of Paris and at the Sorbonne.
Passion for photojournalism
In 2005, I made a reportage in Dharamsala, India, seat of Tibetan Government in Exile. In 2009, I flew to Tokyo in order to make a reportage about the homeless of the capital. The next year, I went to back to Japan to picture the young farmers of Shiga prefecture.
After a trip to Japan, I started learning japanese language and culture at the university. I graduated my Master’s degree in 2012, followed by a Master’s degree in International Relations in 2014.
