New drone remote pilot activity
During 2020, the Covid crisis, sanitary confinements and the difficulty of traveling had an impact on my professional activity. Especially with the photo courses. To bounce back, I invested in a drone and took training to learn to be a professional drone remote pilot to get clearance with the air authorities. On this website it is possible to discover this new activity.
2020 Cancellation of the Rencontres d'Arles
Since 1978, I have always been present to follow the exhibitions and evenings of the Rencontres d’Arles, it’s easy, I live here! But this year, like many festivals, the Rencontres d’Arles are canceled. At the time of confinement, no meetings of photographers in the Place du Forum or in the ancient theater, no exhibitions, no sharing or heated debates in front of a disconcerting work. It’s a shame for the photo, for the creation, for all my faithful friends who come every year and for all these meetings that will not take place; but it is in tune with the times … and I regret it.
I invite you to discover some images gleaned over the years during the Rencontres d’Arles.

Publication in United Kingdom
I met the English photographer Roger Hicks † in July during the Rencontres d’Arles. He is a typical English character with his white beard and his monocle. So I was able to show him my portfolio. It was with great interest and sympathy that he focused on my work Traces of Life. And finally, it was an honour to have my work published by him in Amateur Photographer magazine at the end of October 2017.

Espace Van Gogh
In 2010, I was greeted as a resident artist at the Espace Van Gogh in Arles.
There are still traces of my time spent there on my own space on Youtube
