PHOTOGRAPHER

CAROLE ALKABES

Carole Alkabes puts tattoo artists in the spotlight through her lens: "When I photograph tattooed people, I feel like I'm looking through the keyhole, like a voyeur, and plunging into the intimate universe of tattoo enthusiasts. A psychological and anthropological journey that highlights the diversity and uniqueness at the heart of each individual. This is unusual," says photographer Carole Alkabes. Usually, it is the tattooed people who are highlighted. Driven by his non-conformist spirit, Bomberg takes the opposite approach and chooses to highlight the other side. In a space of trust, the tattoo artists reveal their intimacy, their personality, their creativity with the complicity of the photographer Carole Alkabès. The Swiss photographer works in the world of tattooing throughout Europe. She looks at the indelible language of art engraved in the skin. An artistic look at the bodies. And this time, on those who master all the lines, the shapes, the roughness, and shape the bodies of others. A look that captures our time, and which is part of an ongoing work focused on the "aficionados" of tattooing. Like Bomberg.
