Hotel swimming pools always interest me, often beautifully old-fashioned and sometimes with a unique view. This view teases you with the Toronto skyline, showing the CN Tower. The complete saturation of blue and aqua marine set the stage, bringing the viewers gaze to the window. Art Deco glamour seeps from the interior details and gives a bold contrast with the industrial realism of today’s outside world. (The Yorkville Royal Sonesta Hotel, Toronto, Canada)

I have been working as a professional photographer for the past two years. Trained in the arts, I live between Paris and London. My work takes me across the world, seeking stories of new places to share with my audience. From these travels I bring back unique memories of the moments I capture in new places.

I look for moments that are quietly unique. Often an isolated thing or person in an environment that on first glance is ordinary but on second glance tells a subtle story. Light plays an essential part of how I see that story being told, creating a mood and provoking feeling in each image
