Beginnings

I started photography at the age of sixteen to take portraits of demonstrators in Paris.

As I was observing the crowd, I witnessed a very violent scene between a protester and the police. I got thrown violently on the ground. When I got up, I couldn’t remember what had happened to me. It’s only later, when I developed the pictures of that scene that I remembered everything and realized I had caught a unique moment.
