Carried by a personal reflection on the exiled past of my ancestors, each of my projects is a quest, a search for identity in its own right. I explore through my artistic practice the notions of identity, questions the notions of habitat, exile, memory. Preceded by a long phase of immersion, each of my projects builds a new situation of enunciation, whose goal is to make visible the invisible, to fill in the "Missing Images". In several series of photographs, I reveal a metaphorical retranscription of my daily life, between a distant past and a still nebulous present; the memory of forgotten moments, places and people met. This work about the memory and the identity, my journey, my meetings, push me to question my practice through a documentary aim with anthropological and poetic tendency and seeks to create a meeting point between my photographs and the images-documents collected.
