His stories and practices are eclectic and try to enlight the news by exploring its backstages, like in Lebanon with the Hezbollah martyr painters workshops, in the japaneese crime backrooms, or by following four seasons of the life of an organic farm in France.
His stories about the yakuza, the japaneese mafia, done with the crime journalist Jérôme Pierrat, are still widely published all over the world. With Jérôme, he wrote a book of investigation for the french publisher Flammarion ( 2005) and the spanish one Oceano (2007) : " Yakuza : investigations in the heart of the japaneese mafia."
After the french riots of 2005, he decided to follow with a camera the life of a rugby team composed with youngs from french poor neighbourhoods during one year, between sport and delinquency. With this material , he made a documentay film with Claire Denavarre, for the french TVs Canal + and LCP .
Since the arrival of DSLR made also for video, he practiced a lot this technic , first by doing corporate and institutional films, and then for TV, as recently for a Jérome Pierrat documentary film about hashish trafic in Morocco ( Canal + in october 2015).
In order to finance his projects, Alexandre is also doing corporate and institutional photography and videos, mainly for Parker Wayne & Philips agency, which is dealing with major accounts clients.
He is the author of an outdoor photo exhibition, " Four seasons of an organic farm" under the Patronage of the french ministry of agriculture, at one hour from Paris in the heart of a huge organic farm. This exhibition is running from 2014 to 2017.
His photographs were exhibited recently on the walls of Bondy, a near Paris suburb city. It was a command that consisted in making photos during 24 hours in a poor neighbourhood area of the city, for Médiation nomade an association which is dealing with social progress. In 2015 and 2016, his images about yakuza tattoo were part of an international art sale organised by ArtJaws and the pop culture revue Hey! , with pieces from well known tattoo artists such as Filip Leu in Switzerland.
His photography and films are inspired by 70's pop culture in comics, photography, cinema and music, from which he admires the chaotic and joyfull creative spirit and its humanitarian message.
