Working Together To Quench Thirst
Around the World
Founder of Mirages
By creating Mirages, I wish to draw attention to the many issues hitting our world, more particularly to one of the riches of our planet: Water, the most precious of life, and in doing so, humanity can continue its journey through the decades and centuries to come. May our rivers irrigate our lands, and that the specter of desolate landscapes can only be chimeras, so future generations, whatever and wherever they are, will not be deprived of it, abandoned to their sad, fatal ending.
Yes, Mirages can become reality and help make this world an oasis, where nature will finally be able to take back its rights, and humanity, the course of its life; to continue to write history, and make this present time, which is ours, that does not become its epilogue.

Passionate about image for over 40 years, it was at the dawn of the new millennium that I decided to create my own business.
As a multi-faceted photographer based in Bourges, a medium-sized town in central France known among other things for its eponymous spring, a musical festival with an international aura, and its cathedral listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site, I specialize in printing of art, a field of which I mastered the different aspects and, in particular, that of colorimetry.
During 2020, Serge Grad, with whom I have established a friendship since the 80s, presented the Mirage project to me.
Presto! Here I am, in charge of the technical aspect, but above all of the production of the works on plexiglass at first.
A process is set up … So I personally validate all the stages of manufacture, from the choice of materials, their cutting, printing for an optimal enhancement of the colors, the polished and perfectly transparent finish of the edge, the fixing at the back of a retractable aluminum frame for a visual rendering “as if levitating” on the wall, until the packaging of all the elements in a protective cocoon on a pallet, so that the work arrives without hindrance and in perfect condition at home, anywhere on the planet, ready to install!
Coming from the Deep South, Maria has worked many years in the music industry, as well as a bank secretary. She is the Executive Administrator for Mirages. Every detail at every level is of vital importance to the team: Maria is the first port of call for any issues that arise from production to final installation. Don’t hesitate to contact Maria regarding anything you might require. Your satisfaction is our pleasure.

Joshua’s recognition of the importance of integrating his entertainment legal services with other practice areas. such as business and corporate law as well as intellectual property law, has resulted in Joshua’s ability to provide a full-service law office to clients of all sizes.
