His works are immersed in the complex and sometimes violent reality of political and social situations he presents not as an impartial observer, but by introducing into his work the elements that constitute it (materials, stories, symbols). His works thus bear witness to an encounter, a story or a journey. They are micro-fictions made of flotsam and jetsam, that seek less to demonstrate or document, and more to bring into opposition times and places that never should have met.
