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 was recently interviewed by Street Photography Workshops a website aiming to be a resource for street photographers around the world. The interview gives me the opportunity to speak about my influence, my approach of photography and the way I create images. Please check it.
