20 deserts
5 continents


Desert is by definition a place where no one lives. Meeting people who choose, or not, to brave these inhospitable territories must lead to uncommon stories.

Since 2016 I’ve been photographing the travelers and the inhabitants of the deserts around the world, meeting different way of living, learning different cultures and experiencing the unexpected.

The project Deserts will be published in a photography atlas book with Hachette editions in 2023.

“The extreme clarity of the desert light is equaled by the extreme individuation of desert life forms. Love flowers best in openness and freedom.”
