In Paris where Zacharie grew up, he was exposed early to the work of different documentary makers. Images from far away places and reports of people’s struggle had a strong effect on him. He knew that he had to travel and immerse myself into those stories. Photography came as a medium that would able him to do so.
After successive travels to India, he decided to settle there and document the life of people who the story had an impact on him. he began his career of a freelance photographer and worked on social issues as the Kashmir occupation, the drought in Maharashtra, the transgender community, Cuba’s iron curtain fall, the refugee’s route to Europe, the Nepal earthquake aftermath, survivors of acid attacks…
He believes that photography can be a powerful tool in a lot of aspects. That is why in 2015, along with his partner, they started the Girls Photo Collective that aimed at empowering young girls from modest economical background through learning that craft.
He is a member of the Agence Le Journal
