I began taeching myself oil painting in 1961, after returning from my
studies in Toulouse.
Isolated through my disability, i wanted to overcome inactivity by expressing
in light and colour what i cannot say in words.
I love the bright colours of the Mediterranean, which are reflected not
only in my landscapes, inspired by countries i have visited, but also
in my personal compositions.
I paint the subjets that i feel within me, not those that are expected
A passion, an expression... My aim is to treat photography as if it were
the written word.
To capture a moving moment in nature, showing it just as it is.
The most important element of my photos is the composition, the comes
sensitivity and color.
Random snaphsots of everyday life, but also a little touch of humour and
surrealism in accordance with the subject.
From each of my trips i bring back bagfuls of transparency films which
i then print, after careful selection, on colour only photographic paper.
Lost causes interest me. I am passionate about minority actions.
Most of my photos deal with subjects that are perhaps unusual, that can
disturb or bring a smile, or even evoke melancholy images that have been
erased by our artificial world.
I collect images that i file, then at the right moment i take them out
of my archives to work with them. I work at my own pace, in private, in
order to produce an element of surprisse.
