How did you come to be a model?
Originally, I am a dancer. 4 years ago, after a casting, someone approached me to ask me to join an agency.


The type of photography you like to do ?
I like telling stories, playing characters, like a play. Scenographed art photography as much as pure fashion photography pleases me and resembles me as long as I manage to express myself.


The ultimate lack of taste, for you, what is it?
Pink and red together ! FASHION POLICE (Laughs !)


A place for a drink? With whom ?
I love having a Virgin Coca-Cola Zero with my Stefanie Renoma at the Renoma café. We feel so good there, as much for fun as for a work meeting.


The most photogenic place for you?
I recently shot in an old abandoned farmhouse lost in Italy, the atmosphere was incredible, the light, everything!


A place never visited that attracts you?
I would very much like to go and do a shoot near the glaciers, I love cold countries.


What is your relationship to the body and with your body?
I like to use my body as an instrument, like a musician might play the guitar. It's probably due to the dance ! I love exploiting curves, defying gravity… I move a lot and I try a lot of things with my body when I shoot or even in my life, and I am constantly amazed at the endless possibilities when you start to know it .


Are you demanding with your body ?
I am terribly ! Above all, I'm not looking for perfection because it bores me deeply, but I want to be able to use it as I see fit and for that you need a certain rigor.


What fills you with happiness?
To be able to create, to be free, to be inspired and to bring it all to life.


What's pissing you off ?
To have the feeling of being held back or blocked by something or someone._cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d -136bad5cf58d_      _cc781905 -5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_     _cc781905-5cde -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_     _cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ _cc781905-5c de-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_     _cc781905-5cde- 3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_     _cc781905-5cde-3194- cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ _cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d


What are your beauty criteria, your aesthetic canons ?
I don't really have one, what thrills me are the emotions, the intention that some people give off. The harder the book is to read, the more I like it. Having a beautiful body, pretty hair is easy, especially with Photoshop. But having something to say and making it understood without speaking, that can't be changed! 


What are the main differences between male and female models in the photographic approach, during a shoot ?
I don't make any difference, and I make less and less of it since I've been working with Stefanie Renoma, who downright breaks genres. Precisely, I like to take people towards a new aesthetic that they are not used to making look like me when I shoot I like to play with codes and borders.


Your projects ?
Every night, every day something new goes through my head !
