Hello Loved Ones ! As most of you might know, I've been shadowbanned by our dear IG platform this week... So I decided not to post for about a week. But I love you to much to just disapear ! So I've asked you to ask me anything ! Here is some more details to the questions I've already answered :)
Where can I buy prints ?
At the moment nowhere. You can kindly ask me if you can have a print and maybe I'll say yes. It is not that easy to sell prints in France. You must be registered as a photographer to be able to sell anything (legally I mean). I am currently working on a way to sell them to you my loves. They'll probably be available for 2019, maybe before that. But I won't be printing them in advance, they'll be printed on demand.
How many tattoos do you have ?
I currently have four well five if you count the one that have been covered this year, and yes I am planning on getting more. Do they have a meaning ? Not really.
The first one is on my left boob, I did it because I was maddly in love with my boyfriend, and thought that only him could see this tatt...I was 15 at the time, and the relationship didn't last so....
The second one was done when I was 16, and I was kind of in a dark place. I felt bad about myself, totally depressed, and I was doing crazy things. At the time I felt like an object, that anyone could use, and then throw away so I decided to get a bar code in the back. To remind me to leave this shit behind me, and change, turn my life around.
The third one is from 2011, there is no particular story to it, I was wasted and high and I though why not get a leaf tattooed on my groin ? So I did... Very mature I know !
In 2014, my photography changed drastically, it became more artsy, inspired by painters and musicians, my nude photography was different, more emotional. So I decided to draw one of Dalis elephant, and get as a tattoo not long after that.

And finally, earlier this year, I got my bar code covered, with a reproduction a painting from a Chinese artist. I guess the nedd to be reminded of my dark years was over, and I needed some change. So here we are...for now !
Do you shoot other persons than yourself ?
It happened once or twice. I did it with some friends who wanted me to photograph them... I am not comfortable just yet to work with other models than me. I will probably do it more next year. Taking shots of the same body over and over, is getting a bit boring. I love doing it, but I would also love to explore new horizons.
How do you edit your shots ?
As we speak, I am working on a video about my editing process. The only thing is that there is not much to talk about...I am barely touching my shot : crop, light, color adjustments, that's it... Plus I am not feeling completly comfortable with the video format... I mean would you like to see me on video ? I am not even sure I would have the gutts to show my face on video...
What is your favorite body part ?
That's a tricky question... Concerning my body I use to hate my legs but not anymore, I use to love my boobs and my belly but not anymore. My body is full of imperfections and things I don't like but that is what I love the most about it !
As for bodies in general I think what I love the most is the back of the neck and hands. These are the part I love staring on someone. Because hands tell a lot on someone's story and way of life. And the neck, well, I just feel like it is everyone vulnerable point.
Is BnW a way to hide the imperfection of your shots ?
When I started photography, it was, definitly. Now it's different. I just feel like BnW is more appropriate to faithfully transpose feelings. But now that I think about it, I've answered a similar question in the fisrt Q&A !
