Guest photographer for the Photographic Nights of Selma 2022
After studying Visual Anthropology and then Documentary Cinema in Paris, I made two documentary films in Benin, “Nomadic Projections” in 2008 and “Under the Palabres Tree” in 2014 – selected in 15 festivals and awarded 2 international prizes.My work is part of the long time that requires immersion in a piece of land and a relationship with the Other. Each of my projects is an invitation to meet. I often shoot alone or in a very small team to be mobile and discreet.After 10 years spent behind a camera, I developed my photography practice and am currently working on a project concerning the care of elderly and dependent people, compared to France and Benin.In parallel with my personal projects, I produce recordings and reports (video and photo) in events and shows.
