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 1962, 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.

A Marolles en Hurepoix, near Paris, in November 2014, a Bugatti 35 is being prepared in the garage "NOVO", the oldest specialist garage Bugatti for 3 generations. The garage opened in 1940 with Henri Novo who caught the virus Bugatti aged only 7 years old in 1920, and passed it to his son John. The garage is now managed by Frederic, the grand-son, who continues to maintain and restore the Bugattis of great collectors of the brand as the French Marc Nicollosi, Retromobile show founder.
