I whistled before I talked: I was very lucky to be born in a country where there is no winter, where colors are magnificent under the sun, where the spices tickle the nostrils, where birds always sing, and where sugar has a predominant role in one’s life. I remember riding the train and admiring the sun caressing the sea and spreading its rays like a glittering gold cape over the waves. The constant stimulation enhanced my love of color and light.
When my parents and I moved from Tunisia to France, this new experience opened my mind to other cultures and developed my passion for traveling.
I arrived in the United States in 1999, and have been living in Washington, DC for the past 15 years.
I decided to start showing my photographs in 2015.
When I was twelve, I was so happy to receive a camera for Christmas. It looked like a black soap box. It had no flash, no lenses. That was the beginning of a long process of trying to capture the light and the bliss of the moment.
I take my photographs with my soul, not with my brain. I push the button when my heart starts to pound. At a scene that ravishes my mind.
