    CORBU'S MAISON TERNISIEN

    BALTHAZAR KORAB - ARCHITECT OF PHOTOGRAPHY

    Talk with Balthazar Korab long enough, and a consistent narrative emerges — one of a life and career replete with intriguing contradictions. A photographer with no formal training, he first aspired to be a painter but instead studied architecture, and prefers to be known as “an architect who makes pictures rather than a photographer who is knowledgeable about architecture.” (Published in Design, 2012.1205)
