The Empusa (and its larva, the diablotin) is a mythical insect for all French macrophotographers. Its very graphic form and its mimicry make it a great subject to discover the world of insects from an artistic point of view. It is therefore a species that I wished to immortalize since my photographic beginnings. I have been following a population of this insect since the beginning of 2017. Raising public awareness of Nature through photography allows me, during my exhibitions, to address other more general topics with visitors such as ecology, biodiversity, and in particular my job : biological control. In short, my photographic work could be summed up in one sentence: advocatining for nature in images!
