Biography
I became interested in photography while working in Africa for humanitarian NGOs. In 2010, I decided to pursue my commitment as a photographer in the Democratic Republic of Congo. I realized documentary works on social and human rights issues, and covered news as photo correspondent for the French Press Agency (AFP) until December, 2011. In 2012, I settled down in Paris and I have since worked as a freelance photographer. My work, regularly awarded, is widely published in the French and international media. My work on the social impact of the exploitation of copper in the Democratic Republic of the Congo is part of the permanent collection of the Library of Congress in the United States.
