After more than 8years living in France to study he began a self healing through photography by documenting and reviewing his home country.

Later, he will participate in several collective exhibitions including the Aperture Summer Open in New York and the 11th edition of the Bamako Encounters - African Photography Biennial, and will have his first solo exhibition in Madagascar at the French Institute of Photography in Antananarivo. Since 2018, Christian his now living between France and Madagascar, with his own atelier/darkroom lab in La Courneuve, Paris. He is also slowly leaving documentary aesthetic to a more poetic and sentimental approach of photography.
