Hello everyone and welcome to my website

I did this website after a one-year winterover in Antarctica at the french station Dumont d’Urville. There, I was glaciologist and an atmospheric chemist.

My goal is to share this extraordinary experience (that I wish to everybody to live one day) with a maximum of people and to get the general public better acquainted with this white paradise : the Adelie Land. Every year, the french polar institute Paul Emile-Victor, IPEV, and other foreign polar institutes send people there. So, why not get tempted by this fabulous adventure ?

I hope you'll like these tales and pictures and that they will allow you to escape. I also made pictures of other beautiful places. To me, they are necessarily less beautiful but deserve just as much to be protected …

All pictures are free for personal and private use. For any other use, please contact me.

The photo equipment I use :

"I am hopeful that Antarctica in its symbolic robe of white will shine forth as a continent of peace as nations working together there in the cause of science set an example of international cooperation"
