Showcase the lifestyle that I am living on a daily basis.  from 2012 to nowadays, I kept exploring different ways of creation. Le Journal was born from that envy to share widely my thoughts on things I am living, doing on daily basis. I somehow always found a tremendous pleasure in writing. It seemed to me that creating something like a book is more valuable than anything else, this piece of paper, that particular object will last. In a period where I felt a creative breakdown I found refuge in books where I could create something completely new.

there are mostly analog clichés about the cities I've spent time exploring but not only. This is more than a simple story telling, pictures put aside with no real meaning. It is a particular segment in my life, a time capsule, a few stones put aside.

moments that will be remembered in a lifetime. 

Journal de Bord Magazine
Journal de Bord is an annual, experiment essay that focus on specific cities, places and faces I encounter. In Journal de Bord, images all images shot are taken with analog cameras, some you will find work from collaborative artists, curators, texts published collaboratively rather than curatorially. Journal de Bord isn't about photography, even if the main part of the magazine are pictures. Blind Spot bridges the gap between emerging and established artists, and creates a new context where each can benefit from the company of the other. By publishing accomplished artists on an intimate scale, we strive to enrich and provide direction to our culture. Since its launch in 1993, Blind Spot has featured over 300 living photographers including Uta Barth, Gregory Crewdson, Tim Davis, Rineke Dijkstra, Adam Fuss, and Vik Muniz, many of whom have gained critical and audience acclaim through their exposure in the magazine.

Features are often designed in collaboration with the artists and always showcase new or previously unpublished work. Generally at least one of the six to eight photographers showcased in each issue is an emerging talent. This collaboration of editors, writers and individual artists transforms each issue of Blind Spot into a work of art in its own right.

Blind Spot's minimal editorial content often provides readers with a glimpse of a yet-to-be-published essay or narrative excerpt by one of today's most respected authors. Writers including Joyce Carol Oates, Dave Eggers, Paul Auster and Jonathan Franzen are regular contributors to the magazine.

Utne Reader cited Blind Spot for its design excellence: "The designers of this semiannual journal have created an understated juxtaposition of text and outstanding photography worthy of repeated examination." An archive of the past fifteen years of Blind Spot will be available, in late 2017.
