2021 Retrospective

One year, one minute

The end of the year is always a symbolic moment, when we have fun contemplating the days, weeks and months gone by.

Like all the years of a life, 2021 will have been marked by hard times, but also by many joys, small and big. As a new year is coming up and time keeps on flying, I felt it was necessary to pay tribute to those beautiful moments, those that made some days shine this year.

After a hard 2020 year, I had the pleasure, this year, to create the wedding memories of twelve couples. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate them once again, thank them for their trust, and wish them many beautiful days. My brides and grooms are definitely the best!

I also had the pleasure to realize several couple and family sessions. The most important thing for me was to offer you a pleasant experience, which will become beautiful memories. I think (and hope) I succeeded. A big thank you to all those who dared to overcome their apprehensions and offered themselves these beautiful moments in front of my camera.

You also know all my love for cinema. So you can guess what a pleasure it was to attend the Cannes Film Festival. What an honor to work on the biggest film festival in the world, and to be one of the few photographers accredited on the its famous red carpet! I owe this privilege to my press agency, Starface, who trust me and put me on the front line. With this festival, we made together a beautiful double page in Paris Match and a cover of a Gala issue.

This was followed by press commissions and then the unexpected opportunity to work for the iconic luxury brand, Dior Parfums. I can only hope to have new opportunities to work with them again soon.

I am now looking forward to the future, eager to see what 2022 will be.
In the meantime, to all those who have made 2021 so intense: from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU.
