‘Tanouche le Manouche’ is my artist name. In gypsy, it means ‘Tanouche the human being’.
It is the name my dad, a prolific traveller, called me as a kid.
As a photographer, I am passionate about spiritual development, travel, culture, mindfulness, documentary, portraiture, fine art, fashion photography, photo books and exhibitions. My photographic journey spans various assignments throughout Europe and South East Asia.
My style is humanist, using a cinematic documentary approach. My photos focus on the natural in an increasing manmade environment, capturing what it means to be human in our surroundings – animal, vegetal, mineral or just abstract representations. I have a strong and ever deeper desire to discover topics that my heart and spirit feel drawn to.
