PEDRO JARQUE KREBS
Ferocious beauties isolated from all context, as though they had been captured in their most secret intimacy, this is the remarkable artistic gesture of Peruvian photographer Pedro Jarque Krebs, restoring to the animals some of their stolen dignity. After studying philosophy at the Université de Paris La Sorbonne, the Peruvian photographer has won numerous awards throughout his prolific career, largely due to his captivating wildlife portraits. Born in Lima, he has travelled to the heart of the Amazonian wilderness since the age of ten and specialised in landscape photography from the 1980s onwards. Subjects of fascination that are very present in his work, the wild animals that he photographs in natural reserves have earned him multiple awards, such as the Sony World Photography Awards, the Prix de la Photo (PX3), the Moscow International Foto Awards (MIFA), National Geographic Photographer of the Month, and International Photography Awards (IPA).
