Patrick de Talance is a French photographer born in 1973. Since the age of 5 Patrick has been traveling around the world following his family where the next assignment of his father would take him. He started photographing the world from the age of ten, using his mother’s Nikon 35mm camera and learned and developed his photographic skills with the help and support from his parents, from taking the shot to developing it, during his teen years. Having visited various countries at a young age (America’s, Asia and Europe), Patrick educated his eye at exploring cultures and people and extracting the quintessence of what he was witnessing which naturally led him to develop a keen interest in Travel Photography and People, interest that is still very vivid nowadays.
