Welcome to my World !
I am Caroline. I was born and raised in France, lived a few months in NYC and I’ve been calling Singapore home for the past few years.
I travel a lot, I often take pictures, I regularly write fictions, and, sometimes, I bake desserts 🙂 Somehow it is all fitting well together.
I got my first film camera when I was 12 and it immediately became my best friend, an extension of my eye, and the main medium for my creative expression. Since then, I learnt on my own, tried different techniques, and moved to digital photography for practical reasons but I actually don’t enjoy editing pictures on my computer and don’t do it much.
I favor colorful settings, spontaneous moments, I look for the aesthetics and harmony behind a shape, a detail, a smile. I have been lucky to be able to feed my thirst for adventure since my 20’s and I try to capture the authenticity and the beauty of beings and things I come across while discovering how life is around the world.
I absolutely love waking up at 3am with my Nikon as partner in crime, crawling in the mud, falling in the frozen water, in the hope to get a good shot.
I am interested in all topics – from wildlife to people, from street art to macro, from architecture to food.
Whether it’s through images or words, I like to tell stories and convey emotions.
As a personal challenge, I regularly take part to photo competitions and in 2018 I was happy one of my favorite pictures was runner-up at Montier en Der festival. And one day I hope to go beyond the “final round” I reach on a regular basis with BBC Wildlife photographer of the year. So far I have been once part of an art exhibition in Paris. I can’t forget how thrilled I was to show some of my work. I keep thinking I should do that again, sooner than later.
So this website is a chance for me to share more broadly my passion with others. I hope you will enjoy, escape, dream or smile while going through my galleries.
If you are more into words than images, I also occasionally blog about my travels and some photo tips, among other things.
