Visual Journalist in Mutation

Journalist, digital media producer and interactive story designer, I'm currently working at Racontr.com as Content Manager and Digital Project Manager. Since 2008, my passion for visual journalism lead me to new discoveries and new endeavours into the digital storytelling realm. I've been studying and practicing new forms of non-fiction storytelling techniques like transmedia and non-linear storytelling for about 6 years now. Since 2014, I'm in charge of the "Interactive Journalism" course at the EDJ Sciences Po for Master 2 in Journalism & Foreign Affairs.
I firmly believe internet and the digital realm are the new frontiers where journalism should go boldly with one goal in mind : create more engaging and empathetic stories for an ever more demanding audience.

Full Biography

From Silver grains to Digital

Back in 2011, I founded and directed a small interactive studio called Chewbahat for about 4 years and since it’s inception up until 2016, I’ve been the president of Storycode Paris (a group focusing on digital storytelling, transmedia techniques and digital transformation of societies) that I co-founded back in 2012. For that matter, I've organised or supervised more than 30 conferences and workshops and helped launching the Storycode brand in France and in other European countries. I've also been very close of the i-docs symposium (held in Bristol) since the beginning where I was invited in many occasions to talk about new narrative techniques such as transmedia storytelling & Interactive documentaries.

Before that, I've worked as photojournalist for more than 12 years for various world renowned photo agencies such as Laïf, Polaris images or Abaca in France and in the U.S, covering politics, business and entertainment, first as a local correspondent in south of France and then as foreign correspondent in New York City, NY. A career that provided me with a well rounded understanding of how to bridge the gap between visual journalism, technology & storytelling.

More recently, I’ve also been the lead author and co-director of “The Moneyocracy Project” a Transmedia documentary about Political Campaign Finance Laws in the U.S  published on “Lemonde.fr” in 2012 and available on Hulu.com. Later, my work on the interactive documentary "Grozny: 9 Cities" (published on Mediapart and Radio Free Europe) lead me to receive the 2014 Web Journalism Trophy at the prestigious Bayeux War Correspondent Festival.

Since 2010, I’m committed to share my passion for journalism, storytelling and new media. I've taught interactive storytelling and digital journalism courses in various schools such as the Journalism school of Sciences Po Paris where I developed the "Interactive Journalism" workshop for the Master in Journalism and International Affairs, Sciences Po Annecy (Transmedia Master degree), the CFJ and CFPJ schools (Paris), INA (French National Institute of Audiovisual), the EJDG journalism school of the Stendhal University (in Grenoble) and at EMI-CFD Paris among others.

As side projects along these years, I also participated in the creation and launching of the professional mailing list for French photographers “EP France” (the counterpart of the English and the U.S EP letters cumulating so far 170 members) and the creation and launching of Haytham Pictures photo agency for which I've created the visual identity.
