As soon as I arrived in 2013, my eyes focused on East London and the district of Brick Lane ,Spitalfields. I discovered an architectural complex in the middle of which stands a brick tower, the heritage of the old brewery on which one can read the name TRUMAN, formerly TRUMAN'S. Today, this complex houses design agencies, companies, pop-up shops, galleries and finally its famous markets.
All of this activity generates a particular energy that is constantly buzzing. Brick Lane is also known for its street art, which is abundantly present in its streets and alleys. This street art coexists fully with the old Truman Brewery, ...(read more)
COAL HOLE COVERS
It is from 2015, that my choice was to put forward the Coal Hole Covers, allowing to offer another reading of the street and what dresses it. (Singular reading)?

I will recover photographs produced with iPhone since 2013 in London, which had, in large part, been published on... (read more)
In July 2013, I decided to go to London, curious to discover its urban jungle.
My interest quickly turned to the East End and the neighbourhoods of Hackney, Shoreditch, Brick Lane and Spitalfields where I found new inspirations.
It was from there that I made the choice to stay and live there.
Strongly inspired by the old industrial areas, I fall in love with the Truman Brewery. An institution rich in history, remarkably well preserved, it bears with its surroundings the traces of the different communities that worked and lived there, Huguenots (French migrants), Jews, Bangladeshis, Cockney.
Street photography will be my driving force... (read more)
