''It was at the age of 14 that the photograph appears to me as an extraordinary means of expression. The nature and the great outdoors attracts me, I dream to travel around the world, camera in neck. At that time, photography was still sacred, the darkroom was my favorite place, the smell of bath chemistry, his calm appearance and red lighting, it was magical. The collection presented here represents this lost magic, each image was made with a traditional camera Pentax 6×7 and varied films, each roll is only ten 10 exposures, so I hold my breath every time I ’ press the shutter button.''
