My path in few words…
I have always felt attracted by nature and by the wildlife, so beautiful in their diversity. I was lucky to grow in a kind of island, clung to the shores of Lake Geneva, this lake set like a jewel between the Alps and the Jura. Far from the concerns inherited at adulthood, and lulled at readings of pages of the stories of naturalist Gerald Durrell read to us by our mother, I was watching the comings and the goings of the migratory birds, anticipating my own explorations of a fabulous world which evidently waited for my endeavours beyond the mountains that closed my horizon. …This place where I grew up was perhaps too much like a forgotten patch of paradise to let me escape it unscathed. Life always goes too fast for a contemplative person. Photography quickly became a way of retaining some of the elusive impressions and to allow me to have a second look at things, perhaps with the hope of discovering in them small pieces of the jigsaw of my own identity.
The world is an enigma. It is sometimes hard to accept the fact that beauty, peace and exaltation, must coexist with violence, meanness and pain. Yet, its a duality that inhabits each soul. Born in a traditional Christian home, I had some religious background. But this tradition seemed inapplicable to real life. Therefore, when my dreams started to fall apart, it took me a while to consider that God's love could be the simple answer. I believe that it's God who finally managed to drow me to him ... For me, this was the beginning of the most exciting adventure !
In these times of upheavals and uncertainty, I felt that I should share some of what keeps me optimistic for the future. Should you wish to know more about my experience, and how it relates to the extraordinary events that the world is undergoing, I invite you to read or to listen to my testimony, as well as to a very personal analysis of the world's events. For now in French only. But there is a links page to some life changing resources in English and in other languages as well, that I would recommend to anyone who wishes to progress in the knowledge of the God of Creation.
May our extraordinary God encourage us to enter into this no less extraordinary relationship.

Without homily and without speech but through its ephemeral beauty, nature bears wittness to the existence of an invisible reality. It expresses the creative breath of a universe, where every intake brings life and where every exhalation is a reminder of a primeval dust. For it should be remembered that if it offers some wonderful sights, life is first and foremost a permanent miracle.
