DAVID ZACHARIAS
Interview with the French photographer

David Zacharias is not an artist.

David Zacharias is more like two, three, or four talented artists trapped in a human body at the same time.
He is an awesome photographer, drawer, furniture and product designer, and painter. Somehow he manages to infuse the same creative and poetic vibe in all his works, making them easy to identify and love. He is also a great person with an heart as big as his soul, humble and clever. He is a friend.

PLEASE SHARE WITH US YOUR WORKING PROCESS

  • Sometimes, I do drawings which remain drawings.
  • Sometimes I do drawings of objects, and then make the objects of my drawings.
  • Sometimes I kiss trees.
  • And someday I will be a very famous painter.
