Why make art? BEHIND THE LENS

Born in Toulouse France 1955
Moved to Sweden 1960 and still living there.

Worked as Artist, Setdesigner (Theater), Exhibitiondesigner, Carpenter and Photographer.
My fashination for places that has been abandoned for difirent matter is still strong.
My show "The Souls Labyrinth" is an example of my work, and also Rest my Soil / Rest My Soul witch I am workin on right now.
To photograph peoples faces when they are not knowing about my presance and the fact that they are in focus is exiting.
Peoples relaxed faces outside the studio are so much more interessting then a studio portrait.
Even if I do that kind of photography to.
Pets becomes more and more common.
I have always said " never pets or kids" but I think I was fooling myself then.
Now I do both. And I LOVE it.
The interaction between the photographer and the model is so much more then just making a photography. Its about understanding, respect, trust and love. I am not taking a picture...I make them.
