Pigalle district is infamously known for being the Red Light district of Paris, and home to the renowned Moulin Rouge. It is also the living place of a vibrant community, who was recently gifted with this colourful redesign of Pigalle-Duperré, the regular basketball hang out for many youngsters of the neighbourhood.

As a visual artist and photographer, my inspiration is intimately connected to my passion for travel. I feel blessed to have lived internationally and discovered diverse socio-cultural environments. This has shaped my photographic expression to an unexpected paradox: the exploration of contrasts between mankind, the gentle and abstract beauty lying in Nature, and saturated urban environments.
