Grecian Reverie is a tribute to orientalist painters such as John William Godward and Lawrence Alma-Tadema. Photographer & Model & Costume & headdresses : Psyche Ophiuchus Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France and Villa Le Relais in Nice, France.

I draw my inspiration from painting, particularly from the Symbolist, Art Nouveau, and Pre-Raphaelite movements. Conceived as pictorial works, my photographs, sometimes dark, sometimes luminous, have a philosophical or psychological background through the use of archetypes and symbols. Whether through the exploration of a myth, questioning our relationship with nature and beauty, or even questioning our beliefs, there is also a passionate desire hidden in these photos to re-enchant the world and give meaning to our reality.
