My godfather, who carried me in his arms on the day of my baptism, was a photographer. It was sorting through his effects many years later with my grandfather that I discovered the negatives of the pictures he’d taken of me when I was a child. The preserved moment was like crystal and I was amazed to rediscover the laughing little blonde curly-haired girl I had been.
The emotion of finding these negatives helped me understand why I too had become a photographer. I wanted to give people images they could cherish on cold winter evenings and that their children could look at and know that they were born in great happiness.
My speciality is taking pictures of people in their everyday life or on momentous occasions. I am first and foremost a reporter: unless on special request, I don’t usually work in a studio, but go where the action is: at your wedding, at your home, in a park or on a theatre stage.
I speak three languages (French, English and German) and travel a lot between Paris, France and Ulm, Germany.
Florence founded the action group „Inside Out Ulm“ together with Cecilia Espejo and Slaimi. The first project of this group is Inside Out / coNNeXions. They also have presented a project for the Münster spire anniversary in 2015.
