Born and raised in Paris, I moved to New York City in January 2002, to let my creativity ?breathe? in this attractive, addictive, neurotic city of charm and contradictions. I share the absolute shortage of time with assignments and personal projects, shuttling between Europe, India and the U.S., dealing with my art and family (I have a 2,5 years old daughter called Kika and a husband called Ramu), and lastly but not least trying to make business when the opportunity comes knocking at my door or not.
I started photography with metonymic ?portraits? of architecture and surroundings and evolved into edgy, moody, mostly staged portraits of people. I currently work with the fashion industry and always try to persuade brands to portray their clothes through strong portraits with fashion attitude? this is my current mission ;)
