His work has been exhibited in France and internationally and has won prestigious awards: World Press Photo, 2012 Hasselblad Masters Portrait, Sony World Photography Award. He has published several books, including Sortie de match (Éditions de la Martinière), Lamb and Low Tide. Le Japon du chaos, all published by Somogy Éditions d’Art.
