In 1986 in a temple in Thailand I am given a camera by an American guy who I have met for the first time just ten minutes before. I fall in love - with taking pictures, not with the guy! In 1987 in Hong Kong I work for a year in restaurants and clubs to buy my first Nikon and start travelling with my camera in Nepal, Korea, Japan….so many pictures, I am obsessed! In 1989 I move to Paris with my Australian husband. I work for a photo agency. In 1991 Félix is born. In 1992 Félix dies. I pack my bag…
A sailing boat in the Canaries…Africa…Cape Verde. I work for a few months in a leprosy hospital on a small island… My Nikon is stolen - merde!
In 1993 I return to Paris facing my loss. I can't stay. I move to Budapest for three
years. At first I have no camera but at a party a filmmaker gives me his old Nikon - super miracle fantastique!
I start working hard for Hungarian magazines. A Budapest business journal
takes me on as their staff photographer. I work on portraits and
reportage. I learn a lot. I do fashion stories…freelance for the BBC…a story on pornography in Budapest…a cover for a French magazine….Colors ask me to tell the story of a porn star in a glamorous way…a Hungarian photo magazine makes a six-page cover story on my work…Premiere magazine features my story on film makers in Sarajevo…
In 2000 I move to London and work for Cosmo, The Independent on Sunday, Marie Claire, Elle, Just Seventeen, Women's Journal…
In January 2000 I meet my prince. We return to Paris. I work for a big ad campaign. In 2001 I go to Nicaragua with The Body Shop's Anita Roddick and to Honduras for Elle.
In 2002 a beautiful light is coming... Lucy Rose is born! In 2003 I start taking pictures of kids with my daughter by my side... I work for Famili et Enfants - family and fashion stories. In 2004 I co-direct a commercial film for Center Parcs with Young & Rubicam. I'm infected - I want to make films!
In 2005 my son Arthus Lewis arrives! I direct a short film: La fée.
In 2007 I join Quad production to make films and Digitagent for pictures. I direct a Kellogg's commercial for Leo Burnett - I love Choco Pops!
