I know it sounds cliche, but my love for photography began when I was about 10 years old. I’ll never forget the first time I wielded a disposable camera and the sound the gears made as I wound the film around that 35mm spool. Read more>>

I grew up in Paris, France and from very early on was always drawn to films.
