"This picture was taken by my father when I was a child. He had a photo lab at home and he used to shoot us all the time!

That's when I started being fascinated by photography"

 

Anne is mostly a street-photographer and when she has some time to kill she shoots people around the world and mostly in PARIS, her hometown. She started shooting in the 90’s as she was living in the USA (where she stayed for 8 years); She was discovering new landscapes, meeting new people and adjusting to a new way of life, and she wanted to share it all with her friends and family in France and in Europe; She learned photography by herself and with some friends and professionals.


She has been exhibited in Paris several times and she keeps sharing her work through the world. She also works on specific assignments such as concerts, weddings, events and for tourists visiting her city. 
And when you ask her who is her favorite photographer, she will tell you that she admires Cartier-Bresson, Willy Ronis, Frank Larson, Robert Doisneau or Vivian Maier, some of the best street-photographers, but that her favorite is definitely  #Weegee (aka Arthur Fellig), an American #photographer and photojournalist known for his stark black and white #StreetPhotography (he used to shoot urban life, crime, injury and death in the 50's and the 60's in New York City where he died in 1968 at the age of 69).

She says that she is in love with Paris where she has moved back a few years ago after living in different countries. In March 2015 she was interviewed for a Radio Show based in Paris to talk about her photography activity (the interview is in French):
