Eric Ouaknine is an international fashion photographer based in Paris and originally from the south of France. Very young he shows a particular interest for pictorial art and in particular drawing by developing a universe inspired by apocalyptic, fantastic and avant-garde fictions of the 1980s such as Mad-Max, Terminator, Blade Runner etc... Coming from a passionate family and collector of art, his father painting by leisure, he visits the museums of Florence and Paris and is amazed by the great works of the Renaissance and the Baroque and Gothic architecture that will mark him forever.

After studying nursing, passionate about landscape, still life and portrait photography, he undertook a radical change of direction and created a modeling school in 2001, where he carried out numerous photo tests and made his first steps into the fashion world. Completely self-taught, he carried out his first advertising campaign for a prestigious brand in 2003. In 2004 he moved to Paris with the ambition of becoming an international fashion photographer and specializing in Haute Couture and luxury accessories. From then on, he will carry out campaigns for famous brands, editorials for the press, trips to Milan and New York and will collaborate in parallel with promising young fashion designers.

He organized his first photographic exhibition entitled "DESTINY", a series of artistic portraits featuring original jewellery, in 2008. This event is a major success with the general public. Then in 2009 he worked on a series of futuristic portraits entitled "GIRLZ OF Z FUTURE" that he exhibited in the Louvre restaurant. In 2011, sponsored by Maître Pierre Cornette de Saint Cyr, he exhibited "L’ÉTERNEL FÉMININ" in the abutment of the Alexandre III bridge, an event that will be a great success. "VIRGIN SUICIDE" (launched in 2017) is the artist’s fourth exhibition. This series of powerful portraits was created in partnership with the talented make-up artist Christelle Minbourg.
