Portrait Véronique Tarka

Véronique Tarka

In 1973, she discovered at 9 years old the black and silver photography and participates in a development of a workshop with which it designs her first exhibition at 11 years old, Parisian character portraits in motion like in the movies. In 1978, at 14, she directed short films in 16mm. Curious and devourer of the surroundings and the characters, she is positioning as a witness of our time through photography and film.
In 1980, at age 16, she practices using analogue photo format Hasselblad who did leave more. She will dedicate itself later series "Blad, my love."

Her artistic approach is to capture the emotion and capture movement, to find the right fit between form and substance, so that it seems to be no alternative to reveal a soul or describe a landscape. But the decisive encounter of his artistic life was in 1980 with an exceptional man, his master, the photographer Lucien Clergue (1934-2014). This true human complicity with a passionate and artistic discovery through his series of photographs, "the sea of bare", "bare zebra", "four elements" to disrupt and encourage a passion for the body and the elements.
