Everyone has a story to tell and I'm no different. I tell my story through photography. I am a photographer based out of Paris. My passion for photography began at an early age. I was born in Rwanda. My father ran safari adventure tours that attracted people from around the world. I used to love helping him out.
How it all began
Even at a young age, I was intrigued by the people and where they came from. My father had a friend from Florida who would come on safari, and he gave me a camera once and showed me how it works. This is the photo of me at five years old holding that camera. It was a sign of things to come.
In 1994, our lives changed forever when my father was killed during the genocide in Rwanda. We had to flee the country, leaving everything behind. The only connection I have to my past and happier times in Rwanda is my mother’s few old photos. For me, photos equal link to people, a place and the memories of the moments captured.
