Tristane I. Mesquita (aka TIM) is a self-taught photographer born in 1993 and currently based in Paris, where she graduated in Graphic Design from the ENSAAMA. She works with both analog and digital cameras.


Although she's been taking pictures since her teenage years, Tristane mostly developed her photography skills alongside the band Savages. For over two years, she followed the four musicians on tour from Europe to the USA as their official photographer, documenting their adventures both on stage and backstage. During this experience, she developed an obsession with capturing fleeting emotions.


Embracing randomness, the young photographer aims to find harmony and beauty in the ordinary, or even a form of poetry. Playing around with light, lines and colors, the pictorial composition is at the heart of her day-to-day work.

Tristane is currently exploring a staged approach of photography, focusing on themes such as feminism, gender, sexuality and mental health.
