For over ten years, I have been travelling regularly around the world with my camera. In the process of total immersion in the culture of every region or country I discover, I try to portray the Human in my photographic works. The Human, his thoughts, his convictions, his mystery, his novelty. The Human in portraits, in spontaneous moments, in slices of everyday life, through series of photographs which tend to open a dialogue, arouse emotions and question

#4 The Blue City of Medina
The blue covering the medina of Chefchaouen provides to the different parts of town this dazzling look of purity and freshness under a mountain sun. The medina seems like a huge, winding hall of mirrors.

Shades of blue are endless. Each building has a different pigmentation from the neighbor.

Embedded within a dramatic landscape at the meeting point between the Peruvian Andes and the Amazon Basin, the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu is among the greatest artistic, architectural and land use achievements anywhere and the most significant tangible legacy of the Inca civilization.
