Through his own work, he tries to (re)create a link between pictorial and marketable esthetics (immediate and attractive) and the documentary stream (unfriendly and detached). Here, he presents a scenography about the catering world by representing restaurants as a set where the employees are comedians who play a part as “working people”.
