Wild improvised dance photo shooting in the Imperial Park. Young dancer, Non Tachibana, who I had photographed at the Prix de Lausanne in 2018 happened to be in Kyoto when I was there. We had a great time jumping around the park.
No country keeps traditions with such pride and elegance as Japan and yet no society is as obsessed with technology as theirs. Here a quiet moment of togetherness during the Golden Week, in Kyoto.
Visiting Japanese gardens is a highly spiritual experience, a moment of total calm and relaxation. The sounds of running water and singing birds, the scent of flowers, the aparently wild, but perfectly studied composition, all invites to forget about anything but the present moment. What can be more important than the contemplation of a water lilly or a tree? A Japanese woman taught me that “every day is a good day”, food for thought while scrolling in Kyoto gardens.
When the best thing in a flat is outside of it :) Project for a real estate rental portal in Chateau d’Oex, Switzerland
Impressive rehearsal of the Ballet du Grand Théâtre today. A delight to be able to capture the beauty of the moment, magic lightening, magnificent bodies and great choreography. A challenge that doesn’t look like a challenge.
Le rouge et le noir, wonderful pashminas I photographed today for a catalogue, Geneva, Switzerland

Last shooting of the year: On my way back from France after celebrating Christmas I had a first try at this impressive construction by Frank Gehry. I will add it to my to do list of photography.
The building: The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is a museum of modern and contemporary art designed by Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry, and located in Bilbao, Spain.. It was inaugurated in 1997. Built alongside the Nervion River, which runs through the city of Bilbao to the Cantabrian Sea, it is one of several museums belonging to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and features permanent and visiting exhibits of works by Spanish and international artists.
Mini shooting at the Gmurzynska Gallery in Zurich, designed by Zaha Hadid short before her death in 2016. It is always exciting to walk in Hadid’s spaces. The Gallery exhibits amazing works by contemporary artists. Definately worth a visit if you are in Zurich.
Strolling on the shores of the Rhone River near Geneva, after a day of hardwork I discovered this very sexy bridge reflecting the waters of this powerful river.
On October 25th and 26th I had the chance to work in Astana, Kazakhstan and discover this new capital crazy about extreme architecture and new technologies. Most of the city has still a soviet times atmosphere while the rest is trying to compite with new megacities. In a way it reminded me of Dubai but with a Russian touch.
After very difficult months in which my known world was turned upside down and I had to face a terrible loss, here I am, trying to find solace in photography thanks to an unexpected new commission.
