BIOGRAPHY

After having teached windsurfing and owned a board sport shop, François Aurat joined the team of Tara Foundation in 2008. Chief Deck Officer of the Tara schooner for ten years, he took part in three scientific expeditions: Tara Ocean, Tara Mediterranean, Tara Pacific. He came back from those trips around the world with a lot of pictures: landscapes, sea, sailing, streets, portraits, sometimes shot with a drone and seek to rework as little as possible.
