I have been shooting TV films for 25 years and photography for 40 years.

I have always been fascinated by faces and bodies. And nothing else. Child or old man, woman or man, in tags or in flesh and blood, I repeat the same image, in multiple incarnations, without ever going around. Happy in the studio, lost on the outside, I believe I capture in the gaze offered -or masked- an emotion of which I am unaware of the nature and do not understand the reason. Sometimes the photo is good, I know that “it passes”.


There was a ruined building in the countryside, a former nightclub. It was a gigantic thing, mixing neo gothic and ancient Egypt, in a hazardous pastiche. The building was covered with tags, which over the weeks disappeared under other tags. I often wandered around the building photographing these ephemeral paintings. It was deserted, impressive, the pasteboard and the walls of guingois evoking the silence of the end of the shooting, when the team left, and the sets were falling apart before they were even taken down. I inscribed other, illustrious shadows in these shadows.
