I am from Trois-Rivières, Quebec, Canada. It is at the age of 16 that I realize my first trip, a true awakening occurs, the taste of adventure settles in me instantly.
It was at the beginning of the 90’s that I finished my first training in film photography at the Gilles Roux photographic workshops in Trois-Rivières. I will use this technique for several years, and it is in the mid-2000s that I finished my professional degree in digital photography. Throughout these years, travel continued to accumulate: North America, South America, Europe, Southeast Asia and more recently on Baffin Island in the Arctic. I combine during my work and photography passages.
Many solo exhibitions and numerous awards are now part of my career. Through my images, many of which I consider to be pure street photography, I seek first and foremost to provoke an emotion in the spectator, to tell a story, which will doubtless be different from From one person to another.
Still, the best way to explain my biography as a photographer is to let you be lulled by the images of all these people, the landscapes that surround them, so thank you for taking the time and good visit.
