Honorable Mention / PhotojournalismBACK TO GALLERY
I spent two years photographing in total immersion the reservists of the 6th and 7th company of the 21st Marine Infantry Regiment of Fréjus, and the School of Light Aviation of the Army of Cannet des Maures. "Reservists" offers a new vision of these men who make the Army a vocation. Out of their daily lives, they put their time at the service of the nation. They are dual citizens because they contribute to the defence of the nation but also have civilian professional activities. They are lawyers, painters, businessmen, but they are also reservists.

After studying law and then information and communication sciences, he met with professionals in photography. These meetings clarify his taste for the image and he makes photography his main activity in 2014. In 2020, he won the UNOR Award for his book "Reservists" which closes 3 years of reporting. Awarded by the National Union of Reserve Officers This award rewards works that contribute to strengthening the Army-Nation link.
