365 Homes365 Homes is a photo project that I started in 2011. Being on tour with different shows, I spend a great part of my time away from home, on the road, on planes, in trains and ... in HOTELS! This photographic project is a reflection on my many homes over the last few years: I enter them, I step through, and the next day a new home is waiting for me. Each image shows the door of my room followed by the window view.
"365 Homes" is far from being completed, I constantly update it, so don't hesitate to visit again !
