After visiting the Somerset agricultural show, I went a few weeks ago to the Bath and West Show. Apart from the fact that the Bath and West show is a far bigger event than the Somerset one and so has far more attractions and stalls, I could describe the show in a very similar way. One
I was recently in Swanage, Dorset for a few days. The town is a nice family seaside with a pleasant small beach. However, I didn’t spend that much time in Swanage except for walking along its beach and testing some beers at the local pubs. The area offers plenty of country walks
As a street photographer I sometimes wonder how my perception of colour influences my vision of the world and my photographs. This is especially true in places like western countries where the colours do not always have the light and the visual impact of some exotic countries. However
In these two images taken in India, Sangam and Varanasi, the photo pairing is simply based on the hand gesture. Then the left photo is open as it is possible to visualise its environment as the other is closed.

On the 6th May 2013 I attended my first agricultural show as part of my “From England with Love” photography project. I was not really sure of what to expect despite some promising attractions. I was keen to explore a different environment and culture of British society. I

Playing with light and shade is relatively new to my photography. In 2005 when I seriously started photography, my photographs were not obviously influenced by the light. At the time, I was living in Paris and my work was mainly in black and white, and whatever the weather forecast, I
I recently visited the City of London again. Its financial area really attracts me. It is a world apart from the rest of the United Kingdom and probably the rest of Europe. I found it a difficult place to photograph. Well, there are plenty of opportunities but you need to walk and obs
Once a peaceful Greek fishing village, Istanbul was the capital of both the Byzantine and the Ottoman Empires. A secular city built on the border of the European and Asian continents along a great trading route connecting the Black Sea to the Mediterranean sea and linking the cultures
Expressing myself between documentary and street photography, my work focus on long
