Hans is in his 3rd year of studying architecture. A passion that this resident of l’Escalier reconciles with photography: “My uncle is a professional photographer. He introduced me to photography when I was 10 years old. This passion has continued to grow over time.

Hans Bheeca
The young photographer is currently studying architecture.

For his participation in his first competition, Hans wanted to make a nod to culture: “I had sent 5 photos for this competition. In the end, it was the photo of an old lady with her sewing machine that caught the attention of the jury. Through this picture, I wanted to show that it is still possible to appreciate the sweetness of the past in the present.
