It has been such a long time without sharing new work here! I have a new series of 4 pictures that I will be sharing this week/next week.

In my series Made of Mineral and Vegetal, I collaborated with a make-up artist to experiment body painting in my self-portrait. I added very simple props to this mineral some ivy and some ferns to add vegetal. In these photographs I wanted to express the tension in the uncertain coexistence between man and his natural environment. The delicate balance of nature is too often ignored and damaged.
check out the video we made during the painting transformation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fkqmhw-yRLo
hope you enjoy and find some inspiration to collaborate with other artists!

self-portrait
I like to use butterflies as symbol of change, a new life awaiting
faceless as filled with a doubt, doubting is a great opportunity to face ourselves and think through what we want 
we are not so far away from new year resolutions, what is 2016 made of?
to see how the magic happens here is the speed-edit of the picture:

so here are my favorite self-portraits in 2015... My challenge at the beginning of the year was to experiment more with self-portraiture. I truly believe it is a great exercise to help you be a better photographer (as I always say to my students during workshops).
I also created a short video with my new portfolio in order to review all my works so far and see in what direction I want to take my work in 2016...
thank you to all my models for being patient and committed to my work!

Voici mes autoportraits préférés en 2015.. Mon défi en début d'année était de surmonter ma peur de l'objectif et d'expérimenter avec les auto-portraits. Je pense sincèrement que c'est un excellent exercice qui permet de devenir un meilleur photographe (comme je le répète souvent à mes élèves pendant mes cours)
J'ai également créé une courte video avec mon nouveau portfolio. Une bonne occasion pour revoir mon travail et réfléchir à quelle direction prendre en 2016...
merci à mes modèles tellement patients et qui croient en mon travail..

I cut the contouring part as I found it was a bit not so useful
I am very inspired by graceful dancers, i was very appealed by playing with ink
