À PROPOS – ABOUT

Photographe “de rue”, depuis 2017. Je profite de mes trajets dans le métro parisien pour observer cet étrange Monde dans le Monde. Je remonte parfois à la surface pour faire de la street photo à la lumière du jour.

~o~

Street photographer, since 2017. Along my trips in the Paris metro, I observe this strange World in the World. I sometimes go back to the surface for street photography with the light of day.
