Born in 1997, I am a Luxembourgish photographer based in both Luxembourg and Paris, with a special focus on portraits and sports photography. My daily inspirations to create photographic series are the arts and human movement.
Since I started my photography studies in 2017, I have been working as a freelance photographer for newspapers in Luxembourg. In 2020 I graduated from SPEOS Photographic Institute, Paris, in photo reportage.
Lately, I have been covering different types of sports events, such as Paris-Roubaix and the Cyclocross World Championships but also horserace’s in Paris Longchamp and in Luxembourg. Personal projects and series about people exercising their passion are as important in my body of work.
For example, during the lockdown in 2020, I worked on a portrait series of people practicing their sport outdoors to give their everyday life the structure that they lacked of during this time of uncertainty.
I also followed the behind-the-scenes preparations for the Paralympic Games of Timothée Adolphe, 400m world champion, blind since the age of 17. The high level French Paralympic athlete depends on a relationship of trust with his guides who accompany him throughout his training sessions and competitions.
In the future I aim to continue personal work about stories that attract me and working for the press, where I always look for personal images too.
