"Far from the documentary and reality my artistic work often comes closer to painting and graphic design .
In the digital era, the photographic object is for me very important and the choice of paper for my tirages d'expostion [exhibition prints] is paramount. The appearance of Rag Watercolor and Platine Fiber papers bring out the richness of my Polaroids, and their material reinforces the pictorial side of my images. The quality and longevity of the Canson Infinity® papers make the ideal media for my exhibitions."
