His editorial and fashion images are featured in many of the world’s top magazines and are hanging on walls around the world.

A hauntingly beautiful selection of images taken from a recent shoot with long-time collaborator, makeup artist Julie Bégin, is presented. As well as having her work featured in the world’s top fashion magazines, and major fashion shows, Bégin designed the makeup for the Cirque du Soleil show OVO.
