I have been a real photography passionate for many years, and I love to share my passion with others.
A great opportunity occurred fortuitously recently: to be part of a racing team in the “24 heures du Mans” race to capture the backstage atmosphere of this legendary competition…
This experience gave me the chance to follow a team in the “24 heures du Mans”, from the qualifying sessions to the finish.
The most exciting about it was to capture the emotions while trying to merge into the surroundings.
Stress, concentration, fatigue, happiness, relief, tears… many states which were passed by the people who walked in front of my lens.
The first critiques about this job were very positive, and this is when I knew that photojournalism would take a big place in my practice of photography.
Then I decided to apply for the Perpignan OFF Festival, an event occurring during the “VISA pour l’image” an international festival of photojournalism. I wanted to generate more interest for my work than through usual social sharing platforms.
Without any certitude, I sent my application-form for the festival and surprisingly received a positive answer a few weeks later!
I now have to get ready for the concrete part of the project: organizing and settling…
The Perpignan festival OFF will run from August 30st to September 14th 2014
You can already have a look at the pictures I will use for the exhibition on my Facebook page:
I’m looking forward to hearing of your feedback about this project.
