[Photographer, b. 1952, Toulouse, France, lives in Paris.]

 I wanted not to make photographs that would be art, but art that would be photography. 
 My aim is to make the viewer become aware of his or her responsibility in what he or she is looking at. 
 The event is placed at such a distance, and contained, that these images move beyond the context in which they were made, the geographic setting, and so on, and engage the viewer in a one-to-one relationship solely through their physical presence.
