My mission: To discover places and people firsthand, to learn about and from them. I’m fascinated by how and why things and people work and think that the interactions we have between ourselves, others, and our world is extremely precious. It’s what makes us human.
I love photography and it is how I document my home (Paris, France) and my travels. My photography focuses on people in their environment. I want to capture them in their moment, not many of my photos are posed. In order to capture this interaction, you may notice that I my photos are documentary in style, have space around my subjects and use a deep depth of field.
Technical details about my photos:
- In May 2020, I now exclusively take photos in black and white, using a 35/2 lens and a digital black and white camera (a Leica Monochrom Typ 246). Prior to this, I used a colour digital camera, with black and white conversion (simulating Tri-X’s colour response). Other cameras are indicated in my album notes (if applicable).
- Raw DNGs (from camera) are processed in Lightroom 6, on matte 6500K (or D65) colour calibrated screens, at around 120 cd/m2 (my recommended viewing conditions).
- My prints are produced by an Epson R3000 using Ultrachrome K3 inks on Canson Infinity Baryta paper.
In my day to day life, I’m an IT consultant in Paris working for a large international company. I also sometimes play the violin and piano (although rather much less now) and love good food, good wine, and good company.
