Rachel Scharly is an urban photographer and an urban sociologist. She was born in Provence - south of France - where she grew up. She is postgraduated from University of Provence in Sociology Anthropology. In her early twenties, she moved to Paris where she lived for 12 years. She started to make extensive use of photography in her analysis and social studies. She also started to use photography as a tool for analysis, and photography as a tool to communicate sociological understandings. It is often noted that sociology and photography were born during the same decades in Europe, and, as products of the same social events, one would expect cross-fertilization between what was, in fact, a new way of seeing - photography - and a new lens of interpretation - sociology -. When she moved to New York City in 2012, she started to nurture her curiosity for art photography. Naturally, she fell in art photography creating her own vision of art photography by mixing images, urban language style and words. Rachel lives in New York City.
