About me

Pour la version française de cette page, cliquez ici

Photojournalist, artist-traveler and storyteller of humanity, I am given a mission: to explore, document and tell the human combining text, photography and documentary sketches, to inform but also to honor and remember. I brought back from my trips a lot of stories, photographs and illustrations. I tell you the story of human action with my eye, my pen, my brushes, my camera and my heart.

My images are characterized by a search for graphics supporting the story to be told.

My work has been featured in such publications as the International Herald Tribune, Libération, The Globe and Mail, Harvard School of Public Health’s World Health News and the Gesca Group. I also worked on an Amnesty International world campaign.

After years of work as a freelance photojournalist and collaboration with Sipa Press, I now work as an independent writer-photographer-illustrator. My creative process, even if based on photojournalism and documentary roots, is exploring other territories as a kind of storytelling, mainly by means of documentary illustration.

I was the guest of honour at the 8th Rencontre de la photo de Chabeuil (a photography festival), in France, and was a finalist at the 2009 and 2012 Grands Prix du journalisme independent (Independent Journalism Awards). My documentary exhibit entitled “L’humanitude dans l’ombre” has been distributed throughout Quebec. Furthermore, the multimedia documentary, from the same project, is being shown in many educational and training institutions. In April 2011 I published my first book entitled “Les Carnets Humani Afrika”. I am now working on a second book; “Mon voyage avec Ali”, the story of my exploration of Morocco’s backcountry with my 12 years old son. I am also a member of Photosensitive – a non-profit collective of photographers determined to explore how photography can contribute to social justice – as well as the Frontline Freelance Register and listed on Blink.

A distinctive native language is the foundation of what shapes us as individuals and society. Cultural diversity must be present, alive and displayed.

Market forces have never really dictated my choice but my readership is increasingly international, so I work to make my website bilingual, although French remains the main language. This site is the center of my written and multimedia productions. It is written in the language of Félix Leclerc. International French tinted with Quebec color.
