Born in Belgium in 1988, I grew up in Vietnam and then in France.
I began observing how our society is portrayed at an early age. I used to draw thousands of photos from
photographers I admired, such as Raimond Depardon, James Natchew, Vivian Meier and Nan Goldin. It
was following Sebastião Salgado's advice that I began studying sociology. The photographer advised:
"Before picking up a camera, study social sciences in order to tell stories in a better way."
During my degree in sociology, I spent a year in Istanbul at the University of Galatasaray. I discovered
Turkish society and its issues in depth through its social and political movements, both in sociology
classes and outside by photographing it. That's when I realized that my passion for photography allowed
me to tell stories.
I began studying documentary photography in association with the city of Perpignan and the Visa pour
l'Image festival. I began my career as a photojournalist by financing my reports in Turkey. For three
years, I followed the changes in this fascinating country. I worked with media such as Libération, Der
Spiegel and ELLE.
The #metoo movement profoundly changed my photographic writing to turn towards long term and
intimate stories. Having covered a wide range of photographic practices, from conflict zones to politics
and portraiture, it's in the intimate that I've come into my own as a photographer.
Since 2019, I have been working on gender and the construction of masculinity.
