Olivier, life lesson
Young talent award
festival off visa
Tobota Ague, little town where the wouêmenou people live, opened its door and its secrets in December 2014. Far from the city, in the middle of the savanna, without clean water or electricity, this society is still living a basic rural routine. People are facing difficulties for health care and education. For Olivier, 14 years old back in 2013, like for one part of his comrade, the education desire guided by the urban life research, can be confusing for them. A lot of children and teenagers leave the school to stay in Tigbota-Agué, close to their family, in dismay of the professors think that creates a "stagnant mediocrity". I would like to say that, I was the first photographer who came in the village and the first one being sleeping at a local people room.The wouêmenous were really curious and surprised to see a white guy,"a yovo", getting out in a morning from Olivier's house. I am so grateful Romain Ferrer, Aurélie Castillo and Yannich Capuano, the nurses team, for the opportunity you gave to me to live this incredible human experience. Because of them and the wouêmenous tribe, my way of life and way of capturing emotions through my camera evolved a lot.

Photography volunteering mission
After years of traveling, learning photography at the same time, I have finally been able to create my own exhibition.
This project is regrouping some of the most impactful people I have met on the road. All the photos are in black and white to make people guess where each character is from. Let's break some stereotypes.
I am so proud to say that my pictures have already been exposed in Sao Paulo at @casajaya and in Rio de Janeiro at @olhodarua06
Thanks for all your support.
The Don Faré nurses team have been in Tobota Ague, little town where the wouêmenou people live. They were giving health care, educating people about it and managing the nursery development. Here is a piece from my work there.
