Today, I introduce you my friend Pascal Tarraire. I met him when I was student. He was a photography’s addict and he was student and the famous school of Photography in Arles. He practice a classic photography in a very singular way.

Pascal Tarraire is a self-proclaimed bohemian photographer who trollops around the south of France shooting pictures and doing his best to sell them so that he can sustain his lifestyle. He shoots portraits and is an accomplished purveyor of the nude.

He also shoots erotic imagery with the same creative splendor. Pascal’s approach is unique in that he approaches his work in much the same fashion as a photojournalist. He pays homage more so to Joseph Koudelka than to other artists of the human figure.

As he says, “I try to shoot my pictures like a journalist would do, the only difference is that my subjects are usually naked. Similar to being a War Correspondent I wish to be a Shower & Bedroom Correspondent”. Amusedly, he adds, “If you’re bathing or happen to be in any kind of naked-situation, call me. My mission will be to inform the world of that event!”
