About vocation

By reading the interviews, you certainly noticed how much I'm interested in the passion of the artists, in the depth of their vocation.

Indeed, it's always surprising to see how vocation begins early in our life, in spite of everyone and everything. And it seems obvious that we can't make nothing else, photographers, painters, writers, accepting to make great sacrifices, just supported by our indestructible faith in our destiny.

The final question is : do we born artist ? For my part, I tell : yes we do.
