« He knows as much the music, the cinema and the literature as the image. And he feeds on it, in contemporary dandy, faithful to his punk roots, to his passion for the requirement, to his desire of shaping without a priori, he knows how to manage his freedom as a person.
Then, according to the orders of press, opportunities, and meetings, he weaves a unique way to make the light work on faces, sometimes on spaces. He allows his fragility to appear - envy to know, and to trap- and his conviction of the necessity of images that allow him to be called close, even against the others.
[…] In fact, with a rare elegance, he assumes orders, for which he imposes his handwritting and his contrasts, puts a lot into the possibility of an image that will not still be published. He knows, as nobody else, how to fade in front of his subjects always while remaining present, and establishes in the course of time an album of rare, respectful portraits but without bombast, treating with the same sincerity and the same demands an unknown person or a movie star. »
