A created thing is never invented and it is never true: it is always and ever itself.

A different language is a different vision of life.

Federico Fellini

Although rarely thought of as a landscape photographer, the natural beauty of the architectural world about us, as made in the buildings of the 21st century, has always become an integral part of much of my recent work.

Were it not for the deconstructive architecture that we now posses in Australia: Melbourne in particular and my tendency to integrate 'other' elements of abstraction into my landscapes, interfering with our preconception, I would probably have taken a different course in the way I conceive photography.

Whether clearly visionary and dreamlike, I am fascinated by the juxtaposition of shapes and geometrical forms and their blending of the real and imaginary.

French is my mother tongue, but I also speak Italian and Spanish.

I enjoy meeting people from all milieus. Foremost & above all, I hold great respect for & am fascinated by all cultures, irrespective of their beliefs or backgrounds. Consequently I enjoy travelling immensely & this has become one of my greatest passions (amongst many others......to say the least)!

I "love" photography & my cameras have become some of the daily accessories I cannot be without.


The cameras I use (in order of frequency) are:

Canon EOS 5D MkII D-SLR
with:
EF Zoom - 24 mm - 105 mm - F/4L IS USM
EF-S 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS lenses

& Olympus Zuiko 14-42 F/3.5-5.6 Standard Wide Zoom Lens
