As a “picture maker” , I had my first experience with silver halide, and later I was an early adopter (1983) of digital imaging. This experience led me to video, HD and movies. Nowadays, my taste orients my works to mixed techniques and exploring the limits between these domains. Meanwhile, I wrote about image technology, visual and cultural perception.
As a photographer, specialized in illustration, color-grading and matte-painting, I work with silver halide, digital imaging and video-editing. My extensive experience in these fields has been applied in the freelance work that I have done for companies such as Le Crédit Local de France, Unesco, La Caisse des Dépôts, Agfa-Europe, French Post Office, France Télécom, Pinnacle, Sun-Microsystems, General Electric, Sony-France, Creo-France, HPIndigo-Europe, Essilor… Over 30 magazines have published my work both in Europe an the USA, on the Adobe French website (twice 2000 and 2006) ....
In 2010, I was part of the team who tested Red Camera for the CST (Commission Supérieure et Technique du Cinéma), in 2009, I was part of a group working on a test to restore Jean Renoir’s short film. In 2004-2005, I was in charge of a DVD about home-cinema technology for the public. I ran HDThomson Viper camera tests (shown in Imagina and IDIFF03 exhibits) and in 2001, I produced a short film: “L’Histoire de Pierre et le Fou” by Thomas Norymberg in which I also worked on the color grading (this film was shown three times in Cannes 2002...). The same year, I was also part of the team who ran for the CST, a test of Sony’s CineAlta HD camera.
In 2001, I made a lecture about my work in “ La Maison Européenne de la Photographie ” in Paris. and I illustrated a jazz concert (projection of video and stills on a large screen).
My work was exhibited in France: Pavillon de l’Eau, Paris (2010) ; Espace Canon, Centre Pompidou, Centre National de la Photographie, Salon de la Photo 96…), in Europe (Italy, Belgium, Czeckoslovakia, Germany...). My photomontage works were exhibited in « Le Carroussel du Louvre » for the launching of Sun’s Ultra-Sparc processor, in November 1995.
Some of my work is in permanent collections of Musée du Vivant, AgroParis Tech, Paris; La Bibliothèque Nationale, l’Établissement Public du Louvre, le Musée Carnavalet- Paris; …
Due to my experience in digital imaging, I was often invited to run workshops. For example, during the SIPI (Paris Salon de la Photo, 1995), I demonstrated the Agfa StudioCam (digital camera). In 1995, I was asked to beta-test Photoshop 3.0 and in 1993 and ‘94, I ran a Photoshop workshop sponsored by Sun. I have also taught digital technologies to companies such as Ilford-France, Institut Pasteur, Agfa-France...
