I decided to improve my skills on a workshop with Ed Kashi, especially him because I wanted to have an american photographer’s point of view on my work. I did a little story about a butcher’s shop in Paris, but I lacked editing skills. That’s why I was interested to work with Ed Kashi by editing a story I did in Haiti 2 weeks ago. I spent two days in the main fire station at Port-Au- Prince, the capital. A writer and I did a general report about the country (economy, agriculture, etc) and with those firemen we focused on how the public services worked (or didn’t) in Haiti. The fire station is in a very poor state since the 2010 earthquake and even though it’s situated in the city center, there is no money coming from up to build a new one. Almost 120 firemen split in two groups work there. They do a 24h service. This was the first time I did a long report like this abroad and I hope to have the opportunity to do more of them in the future.
When i was a kid, i wished i had a job that offers me the liberty to discover the world. Today, i’m interested in politics, youth, extreme skiing and french crepes with sugar from Bretagne. In 2008, I graduated at EMI-CFD school in Paris and became a photojournalist. I am now 26 and live in Paris riding a bike to work but I also love to take the train to my home region in the for Rhône-Alpes, where I spend half of my time. And If you need my services abroad, no worries, I’m not intimidated by long flights or boat journeys.
