Tara Fallaux

Tara Fallaux studied at several art schools in The Netherlands and The U.S.A., focussing on film and photography. After her studies at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Tara moved to New York where she started her career as a portrait- and documentary photographer. Since 1999 Tara works as a freelance photographer combining personal photography and film projects with commercial work.

Tara: ‘Photography and film give me an opportunity to fulfill my curiosity for the mysteries of everyday encounters. I am always interested in people’s vitality and fate, how we shape the world around us and vice versa. This open humanist focus is the common strand between my personal projects and my commissioned work. Whether I am photographing and filming on assignment or for personal work, my drive is to tell stories that touch and inspire people.’
