A few words about your artistic journey

I am a self-taught photographer. In my Africulturban association, I learned the basics of cinema there as part of a project called Hip Hop Academy for two years. But after I had an attraction for photography, so I participated in many workshops and masterclasses to improve myself.

How long have you been an artist ?

I have been doing photography for 8 years now.

Why did you apply for this grant ? How will the grant support you ?

For the past 6 months, I have been looking for funds for the release of my "EMERGENCY EXIT" photo book. So when they sent me the call for applications, then I thought that it could be an opportunity for me to release this project in digital version.

What are your concrete artistic objectives after this residency ?

After this residency, I will have my site well organized and I will have incorporated a photo gallery. This will allow you to visit the exhibitions of my upcoming projects without leaving your home.
