Large capitals hit by a pandemic like no other in modern history have been successively locked-down in 2020. Cities have lost their sparkle, people have felt deprived from their social habits. Paris Pop is a creative photographic collage project aiming at restoring colour which has faded for too long. It is a graphic representation of urban hope, a reminder to all that life will regain our streets and cities will soon shine bright day and night.

As a visual artist and photographer, my inspiration is intimately connected to my passion for travel. I am lucky to have lived internationally and discovered diverse cultures. This has shaped my photographic expression to an unexpected paradox: the exploration of contrasts between the gentle and abstract beauty lying in Nature, compared to rich and overloaded urban environments.
