The documentary “La vie en rose” is now live on the website. It relates the story of Claudette, a happy hermaphrodite prostitute whom I have followed for two years. The documentary tries to give her a voice to express herself on her work and gender, as well as show that differences are not only a source of suffering. Claudette has endured her whole life quick judgements from people basing their opinions solely on her work or her gender. Here she can show that she is a person above all else, with convictions, passions, a family and friends, and that neither her work or her gender can define her. It has been a privilege to get to know her for this project, to learn from how she sees the world and to confront some preconceived ideas to her truth.
The introduction text to this project may seem long but I encourage every person with an interest in this subject to read it before looking at the images. Sex work end gender issues are complex and the images on their own will not be able to successfully say all there is to say on the subject.
By following the link below you will be able to see my newest project, still in progress, and support it. It is a documentary about the life of Claudette, a happy hermaphrodite prostitute working in Switzerland.

The website is now updated with the pictures taken in Greece for « The waiting rooms of Europe » project. This documentary is now getting to an end, and I am currently developing it as a book and as a multimedia essay.
I will be in Arles from the 4th of July to present this project during the portfolio reviews.
I am currently in Athens working on “the waiting rooms of Europe” project, Greece being one of the key destination for immigrants trying to reach Europe. The situation in Athens is extremely problematic, especially since the economical crisis that struck the country, raising the unemployment rates and making it almost impossible for immigrants to find a stable position in the country.
The pictures produced during this trip will be added to the website in a few weeks.
… to my brand new web site!
I hope you’ll enjoy the projects which are displayed on it, do not hesitate to send me emails if you have questions or just comments, and i’ll do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.
I will soon be in Greece to continue the “Waiting Rooms of Europe” project, so look at this one as what it is: work in progress!
thanks and hopefully see you soon!
