About Fanta Kaba

Fanta Kaba was born in 1987 in Paris, where she lives and works. She began her career in Finance before transitioning into photography after obtaining a MA in European Photography. Her experimental and poetic work invites to contemplation. The textures, the natural elements, the body and the mouvement are at the heart of her photographic work. Focusing on fragments of the human body and of sculptures, she transforms her subjects into intriguing and abstract compositions of lines and texture, of shadow and light. With subtle shades of gray and delicate landscapes, the artists develops a singular and meditative photographic work that allows us to be immersed in a universe of sensations. Her black and white photographs often confuse the line between illusion and reality, a border she often plays with. Conceived as a visual poetry which evokes rather than explains, her body of work asks questions about humanity, about our perception of reality and about traces of time. She also develops an experimental work with polaroids and around the exploration of the photographic means through a consistent confrontation between analog and digital.
