I came to photography by accident. My father Jean-Pierre Thibault called me one day to offer me to enter the DPPI agency, which he founded in 1965, specialized in motorsport. I had the chance to go through the back door and learn all facets of the operation of a photographic press agency.

From "small hand" to the Black & White laboratory via the archive, I learned the basics of photography on the edge of the racetracks in the 80's-90's.

At the beginning of the extensive media coverage of sport in general, the agency enlarged its activity to other disciplines. It was during this period that I was asked to take care of selling boats pictures by organizing a "Sea" department.

After a professional break at the passage of the century, during which I could among other things restored some cars (NR : including the Beltoise iconic Matra MS1 1965) I took back the viewfinder to mount topics for the press.

Born into a family where the car was its main purpose since its genesis, I bathed my entire childhood with racing cars and their history as a backdrop.

These are not the shapes and colors that interest me, that's what's behind the lens.

This is the only exception that Carlo Riva deigned to grant a rich Italian industrial. Designing a single copy at his request on the basis of RIVA Tritone, the largest twin-engine of the 50's. This Super Tritone RIVA is the largest ever built in the world in 1960, powered by two Cadillac V8 engine derived directly from the Cadillac Eldorado "Biarritz" 1952, chosen for their reliability. It is now owned by a boat's collector based on Lake Como in Italy.
