"Vivo y trabajo en Francia. Cuando viajo, primero fotografío a la gente porque la decoración es para mí, la mayoría de las veces, solo un telón de fondo. Es solo después del hecho de que me doy cuenta de que el sujeto vive en la decoración o, a veces, al revés "
"I live and work in France. When I travel, I photograph people first because the decor is for me, most of the time, only a backdrop. It is only after the fact that I realize that the subject lives in the decor, or sometimes the reverse."
"Je vis et travaille en France. Quand je voyage, je photographie d'abord l'humain parce que le décor n'est pour moi, la plupart du temps, qu'une toile de fond. C'est seulement après coup que je prends conscience que le sujet habite le décor, ou parfois l'inverse."
