Pedro Jarque Krebs

Pedro Jarque Krebs (born 1963)[1] is a Peruvian wildlife photographer, best known for his darkly ambianced, studio- quality close-up portraits of beasts, large birds, and other wild animals.[2][3][4] He has won photography awards including Sony World Photography Awards, SipaContest, IPA, and Px3.[5] Jarque was born in Lima. His Spanish full name is often quoted as Pedro Jarque Krebs.

Career[edit]

Jarque graduated in Philosophy of Science from the Sorbonne University in Paris, and educated himself as a photographer since he was a child, when he began playing with his fatherly-gift camera taking pictures of tadpoles and frogs at a pond near his house.[6][7] Jarque's artwork has been frequently published in NatGeo. [8][9][10][11] Jarque's photographic exhibition Fragile was on solo display at the Peruvian Embassy Gallery (Washington,D.C.) in 2019.[12] In commentators' words, Jarque's photographs "aim to break down the psychological and emotional barriers that separate us from our fellow creatures, capturing every animal in an atmosphere of breathtaking intimacy,"[1] and constitute "a cry against species extinction."[13]
