Interroger le monde moderne dans lequel on vit et tenter de briser l'individualisme et l’anonymat de la grande ville. En allant dans des Non-lieux (métro, centre commercial, rue passante à l’heure de pointe) et en demandant à des étrangers de les prendre en photo, je brise pour quelques instants le fonctionnement habituel de ce monde moderne. Je rend ces Non-lieux existants en y créant un événement dont l’étranger va se souvenir.

Approach to photography:
Questioning the modern world in which we are living and trying to break this individualism and the anonymity of the big city. By going into “Non-lieux” (no existing places) (subways, malls, and crowded streets at rush hours …;) and by talking to people to take photos, I break the usual way this modern world works for a few instants. I make real these “non-lieux” by creating an event that the stranger will remember.

Wow, usually I just look at your pictures and admire them briefly, but this one really captured my attention. I love the look of attitude on her face... you captured her at a great moment. Thank you for breaking into those 'non-lieux' places and creating something amazing
