Sab is your archetypal self-taught
Driven by a burning desire to become a professional, Sab spent
several years in the UK developing his skills in wedding
photography, portraiture (adults and children), social
reportage, nature and still life, before finally answering the
creative call of Paris.
then he has been writing, painting and photographing the capital
he says has 'set him free' and he likes nothing more than to
share his love of the city with others.
has run regular photo critiques at legendary Shakespeare & Company
bookshop on the famous Left Bank of the river Seine and is a
familiar figure on the Paris creative scene. An artist, poet and
teacher as well as photographer, Sab lives the bohemian Parisian
life to the full and has truly adopted this city as his own, or,
as he says, 'Paris has adopted me'.
Sab's own words:
me, Paris is, without a doubt, the creative centre of the
universe. I only have to open the door and walk out onto the
city streets and images and words start to flood into my head.
Sometimes it's difficult to decide what NOT to photograph, the
choice and variety is so great.
"Paris incorporates all sides of life, from the glamorous to the
tragic; from the monumental to the humble, from the historic to
the modern, from the permanent to the fleeting. And there is
always something new happening. You can never be bored in this
city of shadows and light if you keep your eyes and heart open
and learn to really 'see' what is right there in front of your
eyes. Paris is the ultimate photographer's heaven."
