Emmanuel was born in France, and raised on two continents. Emmanuel studied in Paris and graduated from École Superieure de Commerce de Paris, with a side study at l’École des Beaux-Arts.
In 1993, he began a career in advertising – a career that has brought him to New York (twice), Paris and Hong Kong. He is now Chief Operating Officer of one of the world’s largest network.
In addition to his ‘day’ job, Emmanuel pursues an active life in photography.
His portrait photography has been published in books and magazines. Most recently, many of his hand-selected photos were shown in exhibitions including New York's Lio Malca Gallery (June '09), the Austrian Cultural Forum (January '10), the MUBE in Sao Paulo (May ’10) and Singapore’s AAF (Nov ‘10).
Emmanuel currently lives in New York with his wife Hong Tam and their two sons, Louis and Matthieu.

In September 2012, we decided to build a pop-up studio in the lobby of a building on Jiaozhou Lu, one of the most vibrant streets of Shanghai. We spent two days stopping bicycle riders in the street. Hipsters on fixed gears, businessmen in a hurry, shy house employees, retired couples, high school students in uniform...we invited people to participate based on how we felt when they passed in front of us.
Every one was very intrigued; no one turned us down.
We took their portraits and we talked a little bit with them (“Where are you going?,” “Why did you choose this bike?,” “Do you ride it every day?”). They left with a nice story to tell and so did we.
Through this collection of portraits, maybe you’ll see something you hadn’t seen before in China.
