« Déjeuner rouge » (Red lunch): “comfort, good food, yes but that is not the main thing! Better than thousand words, these pictures of tables taken from above stylistically very personal and artistically tasty, photos which sublimate the ordinary, these "moments of humanity", of shared pleasure and happiness! Witness to these magical moments, witness with a double view, both a member of the great tribe of hospitality and a photographer, I give you these "little things" that reveal the flavour and spice of each bite, each step, an irresistible invitation to sharing, friendship, love, I hope!”
