For several years, I worked at Nane Editions, a French publishing house that focuses on explaining national and international administrations to young audiences. At Nane, I wrote and co-wrote 6 books whose topics included the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the French Gendarmerie Special Forces and also the French National Police (www.lacollectionducitoyen.fr.)
For two years, I traveled the GCC countries with a photographer to document the works of more than 20 Urban Artists in Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates. The result of this project is a 6 book series describing the societies through the eyes of these border pushing artists. (https://tothearabianstreet.wordpress.com)
