About Lionel

My story in a few words

For as long as I can remember I have been travelling around the world. When I was 12, I discovered photography, when my father offered me my first reflex camera. Since then, I have always traveled with my camera in hand, first using black and white film and then moving onto digital photography. My third passion, animals and nature, shaped my professional career. I did a master thesis in Biology, studying wild chimpanzees in the Ivory Coast jungle for two years. After this experience, I studied infography for a post-graduate thesis. I worked for several years doing 3D real-time animation in addition to web and graphic design, the field in which I'm working at the moment.

This website combines all my passions. It’s a window for me to share experiences and images from my recent travels. I hope it will motivate others to discover the world or at least to travel through their mind.
