About

Tarek Haddad is a Lebanese photographer currently residing in Arles. His approach to photography finds its grounds in the balance between complementary opposites; the pragmatic and the poetic, the structured and the intuitive, the logical and the emotional. He had started in the field of computer science before shifting towards photography. His personal work questions the relationship between humans and their environment on both personal / individual and collective scales, and has been exhibited in Lebanon, Switzerland, and France.

In 2019, he formed a duo with Laetitia Hakim. Their joint practice is based on complementarity, duality, playfulness, and materiality. Their work stems from an ongoing conversation revolving around the actuality that marks them and the spaces they interact with and inhabit. It consists of stepping back, reflecting, and then responding to the events in question.
