phoca thumb l 1 shiva paris 2003bdDuring a tour of the Middle East with her family, Sabine Jaccard discovered the joys of photography: she was 9 years old. Since then, photography never quit her.
As she loved French and English literature, she studied both at Oxford and London universities, then at the Sorbonne. Shakespeare watched over her in her studies and in her work as a photographer.
Her aim : to produce tableaux vivants that echo some of Shakespeare's main themes: the antagonism between reality and illusion, between light and shade, between body and soul.
In 2000, Sabine Jaccard was introduced to Henri Cartier-Bresson. It confirmed her vocation in life.
Since 2002, exhibitions follow one after the other.

Sabine Jaccard particularly loves street photography with black and white prints on silver paper, and not digitally produced prints. According to its Greek etymology, the word "photography" means "writing with the light" ; Sabine Jaccard has chosen to take backlit photographs to express her desire to approach, touch and understand what drives human beings.

In 2017, she published her first photo album book entitled « Water Theatre ».
