What interested you about becoming
– Photo allows me to express myself, to tell my stories with color, light, characters, settings, symbols... and reproduce what I see in my dreams. What is certain is that for me, the images speak louder than words.
Where do you find inspiration to
make your photographs?
– Certainly in movies. I love Wes Anderson, the fantasy that emanates from his films, through his characters and their offbeat style, the attention to detail he shows in the development of its decorations (such as wallpaper depicting the history of the Royal Tenenbaums or paints on the Darjeeling train). I also like very much old movies at the time of major Hollywood studios, for example "The Ladies Man" by Jerry Lewis. In this film, the house in which the action takes place is presented as a movie set, removing the wall of the home and offering a sectional view, the camera moves from room to room and has comprehensive plans in which we can then observe what is going on in several rooms at once. The home becomes a doll house, returning the characters to their fictional side. This is a very long time that I dream of a series inspired by this film.
What do you most like to
– I most like to photograph a character whom I then place in a scene bringing it to life. My characters do not exist through their actions or expressions because I often put in situations where they are not very much active. What interests me is give them a substance not by what they do, but the situations and settings in which they are located, by accessories and various objects around them and which define them. One way to translate it more often judge people by their attributes, by their actions. My photos are like a movie scene, it captures a moment of a story already begun. The character is at a crossroads.
