About Me

I'm a swiss independent photo reporter. I travel often, mainly in Eastern Europe, in Turkey, in the Caucasus, and in the Middle East. I usually publish my work in newspapers or magazines. I love to spend long travels and stays abroad, and then come back to my small swiss city in order to focus on the pictures and the material I bring back with me. And then, from there, to prepare new departures, new projects... I like the idea of hosting, to thank the members of the community that hosted me abroad.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet unexpected people. To learn something about the places I visit. To stay and sleep for free. To host people who use it for the same reasons.
