Portrait Nath Sakura

Nath Sakura

Photographer artist.

Nath-Sakura was born in November, 1973 near Barcelona (Spain) of unknown parents and she was raised in an orphanage. She became a photographer because « she couldn’t paint », as she explained to Art Nou, the Catalan reference art magazine. In her early years, Nath-Sakura became a PhD graduate in political philosophy. Then, she took up a career as a professional reporter and later decided to have a sex change. Her work is mostly about this movement in-between genders and aims at showing with great subtlety the « metaphysical brutality » there is in being born again. She now lives in the South of France, near Montpellier and works for a great many non-specialized daily and weekly newspapers as a photo reporter. To date she has published five photography books and she has been given a central importance in many prestigious exhibitions. She is notably one of the associated artists of the very fashionable Bertold Foundation in Lugano, Switzerland. Both a photo reporter and an art photographer, Nath-Sakura shows the real in a tragic and quirky way through pictures yielding themselves to multiple layers of reading. She is now a well-known and singular artist among European photographers.
