Who am I?
I am a freelance photographer since 1989 and I live in the Ardèche in France. After having worked twenty years for the magazine press, I began, in 2004, an in-depth work about the bee and beekeeping in France.
In 2007, I expanded my work on the bees to a worldwide dimension, focussing on the relationship between Man and the bee, from the harvesting of wild honey to industrial and commercial apiculture. Between different peoples, cultures and environments, my reporting led me to Nepal, Cameroon, Russia, Argentina, Mexico, New Zealand, the United States, Romania and to Paris for urban beekeeping.
Since then, I have taken my project forward along three axes:
— the emerging countries of India, Ethiopia, Brazil, China;
— the great capitals of the world, encompassing New York, London, Berlin, Hong-Kong;
— the beautiful beekeeping traditions in Australia, Germany and Slovenia.
