About

Young self-taught from the southern french Alps, who has always been influenced by nature, especially by original atmospheres.

Questing after life meaning and depth, he is concerned about wilderness authenticity. His lonely quest brought him to leave the coastline to reach the summits which still remain natural.
Walking across hills and mountains always looking for unusual encounters and subtle lights, to get away through soothing moments.

A privileged approach to highlight personal ideas and get to know himself facing the immensity and power of nature.
Films & Photography are an attempt to share the essentials through a vision, particularly environmental conservation.

 

«Style doesn’t matter, what’s important is conveying an emotion.»

      “Introspection is self-awareness. The freedom to liberate oneself from the known and to evolve towards one’s own truth.”

      Overwhelmed by hyper-connection and the excess of information, it is difficult to focus on our inner life. The INTROSPECTION film takes you on a quest for a real life: the exploration of our emotions and our feelings.

      The film was produced in accordance with the Charter of the Mercantour National Park.

      The mountain sequences were filmed with respect for nature with free and wild animals.
