Born in Ex-Yugoslavia in 1968, I was 3 years old when my parents decided to flee Tito's communist regime. We first settle in Belgium, then for professional reasons, moved to France in 1978.

At the age of 12, the old piano in the living room was inviting me & I started the conservatory.
Quickly, seeing potential, my teacher took me under his wings and at 15 ... I knew that I would make it for living one day!
At the beginning, there was the music ...
At 16, I formed my first band and composed my first songs. We had some esteemed success in our suburb.
I discovered the Blues which became my favourite music, probably the freedom need, anchored in my family.
Few years later, i started my musical career.
After a few chaotic years, spotted by a French Blues artist, things quickly grew up till i worked with some famous t French artists.

A few years later, very affected by a dispute with an artist, depression knocked on my door and ... I stopped all musical activity.

Relationship with photography ?!

My need for creation was coming back and I study dramaturgy. A year later, i wrote 3 short films that were produced.
However, the slowness of the process, coupled with the different layers of decision and compromise, did not suit me and I left this adventure...

During those years, I met up with a childhood friend who was a photographer and instantly I was won over and seized with a passion for this art.

I will finally be able to express my sensitivity without any compromise !

Amused, a friend of mine recently pointed out to me that he kept seeing me immortalizing evenings, a small camera in hand!

What does photography represent for me?

The calm, the serenity and actually, I rediscover some of the sensations I used to experience with music. On the pitch, I'm in the action, like a concert. And during retouching sessions, I find myself in the studio, working on a photo, like on a mix!

Why Black & White?

Permanently torn between the Force and the Dark Side, I find in black and white this opportunity sometimes to let the appeasement and serenity speak, sometimes the powerful anger and contrast of nature.
However, I sometimes let my camera drift towards the shimmerings lights of sunsets and sunrises...

My projects ?

My thirst for freedom drove me in 2019 to visit Auschwitz. One of my hardest experiences I 've had.
You can't be prepared for that kind of experience !
I managed to stay focused on my photographic work until 4 p.m., then I had to put down my gear and... cried.

I have prepared an exhibition bringing together about fifteen annotated photographs and wish to present it to the public.

And then ... to photograph, to improve myself again and again and to experience nature….

And ENJOY.....
