Tarek is a travel and documentary photographer.

He lives life by his obsessions: capturing the intensity of the fleeting moment, finding humanity in the world around him; sensing the impermanence of life in its brevity, or its eternity. Tarek believes that everything is defined by the way you look at the world, at events, at beings. His work, his life is a quest for beauty.

Tarek has bases in France, Lebanon, Germany and Benin. He is fluent in French, English, German & Arabic.
