French photographer, I discovered Asia in 2002 while I was making a documentary about Laos (see Video) . I really had a crush on this country with his passionating culture. Since then, I have travelled on a regular basis, mostly in Asia. Therefore, photos became for me a way to share the beauty of nature and peoples I have met. Finally, I came to live in Chiang Mai Thailand in 2017, famous for the number and diversity of its temples honoured by the great fervour of the natives.
Spirituality is a very important matter in my work, I’m fascinated by the profoundness of the ancient traditions, still present in the life of many peoples today. I take pictures of scenes which gives me positive emotion, it can be landscape as well as peoples. I never stage my pictures, I like to consider photography as a meditation where you are in the moment, ready to trigger when all elements combined in order to create a subtle order.
Currently, I’m more into Time Lapse video, I really like the way it enhances beauty and impermanence of landscape.
Here are two quotes inspiring for my work:
“The real key is to realize that the universe is beautiful. The first job is contemplation. It’s just the quality to perceive.” Patrick Burensteinas – Alchemist
“Artists have the responsibility to serve humanity… give people hope.” Dalai Lama

“When you practice photography, one can understand that the world comes to us in light and that light is the essence of things. This is also what Nicolas Jouhet photography told us. Photographer in love with mystical Asia, viewing its worth seeing and bringing images that connect Heaven and Earth.”
