In a context where the body, in particular the Female body, is political, I have chosen to treat the human body as 'Monuments'. Non-compliant photographic representations, loosely inspired by 19th-century French sculptures, in "Monuments", I treat the body in all its strength and grandeur. In my images, I am trying to capture the power spirit, the emanation, the charisma of the body. Legs are columns, backs are roofs, hands windows.

Born in France, I have been living in New Zealand since 2000. I photograph people. People moving, running, jumping, protesting, crying, laughing working… But above all I love working with movement artists: I am lucky to be able to collaborate with the best choreographers and dancers in Aotearoa / NZ.
