Mamydette is my grand-mother. She is 96 years old. She wants to go and yet she is scared of when that would happen. But what she is most afraid of is living to watch herself slowly go. The pandemic brought me back to France and as a blessing allowed me to spend time with her.

Drawn to deep emotional subjects, I use my camera to answer personal questions, and I aspire for my work to contribute to help people see in a different way and feel less isolated.
