«My work is devoted to groups of young people who share a taste for Hip Hop music. The young men I photograph are constantly aware of their appearance, especially their posture and their body language. The question is how much the media world influences the reality of these young men, their perception of themselves and the development of their identity.”

«In this survey, I was interested in a specific category of people - adolescents, and a particular type of architecture - schools. Young people, kept at a distance from the adult world to which they do not yet belong, have difficulty finding their place. In this sense, school is far from ideal precisely because it’s a place chosen by adults to keep them busy. When visiting schools, it quickly becomes apparent that the space is organized primarily according to functional logic. Movement, places and postures are choreographed by the school authorities.”
