Brilliants etymologists and anthropologists have been battling for years on the mysterious origin of the surname « Daudon ». Among them, Pr. Le Coq succeeded in proving a link between the French word "la dinde" (turkey in English) and the surname. This galliforme is known for the quality and tenderness of its meat but also for its love call.
Born and raised in the Alps (there for people who miss their geographical lessons), I have been nourished with grains, good cheese (not that plastic bag) and dreams. I wanted to discover the world beyond the courtyard and the mountains. After reading the marvelous Animal Farm by George Orwell, I decided to prove that George should have included turkeys in its novel, turned myself into a human and then tried to get rich and dominate others.
(Un)fortunately, I did not succeed.
I however learned something really important: the magnetic power of images and visual arts in accessing freely and deeply into human brains. Photography purpose is to create aesthetically a visual link between the consciousness and unconsciousness. 
We are living crazy times with so many severe mutations (not only animal to human). I want to photography the Homo Technologicus, the Human of our time. Working with both analog and digital cameras, I am also experimenting other visual arts (including performance).
