Last may I drove from Montréal, QC (Canada) to New-Orleans, LA. Then from NOLA to D.C. before returning to Montréal. This 4,380mi across 17 US States has been an incredible adventure from which I made my first photography book.

We did 17 states in 13 days for an unforgettable experience — now available for you to discover (with some previously unreleased shots).

I envision a natural photography. Thus, all pictures are not retouched, not cropped, not photoshopped, not modified, not reversed or rotated, and not staged. Without any pretension nor judgment, the books aim to be a gaze upon the vast American diversity and its regional specificities. A vision almost naturalist, without artifices, but emotional nonetheless in its depiction of Uncle Sam’s country.

I’m available to continue or rather start conversations in the comments about this project. What was the best part? The worst? Best experience? What would you do differently for the same journey? You name it !
