In the artist’s words:
Over a major part of my life spent in France, I have built up my portfolio with black and white analog photos printed into a dark room. I have been an assistant at the Rapho Agency in Paris (home of famed photographers Doisneau, Ronis and Boubat). Then I moved to Australia a decade ago. I have received an extensive list of accolades. My photo series Australian Biotope has been exhibited during Photo LA 2016 and at Art Basel 2015 (Switzerland). It has been published in the magazines PHOTO, The Eye of Photography, and Profession Photographe. My conceptual work on abstract aerial views of the Australian environment has been featured in exhibitions in Tokyo and at the Kanazawa Museum of Contemporary Art in Japan, but also in UK, France, and Italy. I have now sought to innovate across a project like “The Zebra Nude Experience” in photography using natural lights, stripes, and bodyscapes.
