Portfolio of the day
Who are you?
I always knew what I wanted to do: after high school, I went straight to the Paris-based Icart Photo school, from which I graduated in 2011. Before graduating though, I started working for a company in Hong Kong, an amazing opportunity that allowed me to travel across Asia: from Hong Kong to Ho Chi Minh City, via Shanghai. During these days, I photographed everything around me – backpacks, furniture, barbecues… and all other 'Made in China' objects off on their way to the European market.
In January 2012, I joined a great photo studio as assistant and editor. This career move allowed me to confront myself to the commercial world. It trained and developed my personal artistic vision and aesthetic, as well as being an amazing learning experience, pushing me to develop my still life work.
Confirming my aesthetics and interest for objects, I continue to be inspired by commercial photographic work, in which I always recognize the true artistic expression.
My work is inspired by daily life and tends to be very close to the object. Making images the less "Photoshoped" as possible is a way for me to work the object before pushing the button. I am a photographer in the Latin sense of the word as I’m very careful with the light and I draw with it.
What is your next creative project?
Always amazed by textures and objects, I want to explore more about still life and jewelry but I’m also very interested in food photography.
What do you like about Portfoliobox?
What I like with Portfoliobox is how simple it is to create an online portfolio with your own design with a lot of options to make it very personal.
