Artist’s website

Young multi-disciplinary artist Charlotte Mano is part of the emerging European photography scene.

Charlotte graduated from Gobelins, l’école de l’image in 2017 after her double degree in modern literature and cultural communication.

Her photography appears to revolve around several themes (the body, space, darkness) yet it never ceases to call image into question regarding its power of representation and transparency, as well as its own limits.

She has won several major awards and exhibited her work in many renowned festivals and institutions. Her series ‘Portraire’ has now been acquired by the Musée français de la photographie.

Her time is currently divided between commissions, personal and artistic research, and teaching.

In her series understatedly called Portraire, Charlotte Mano examines images and their power of representation. The subjects in her bluish photos depicting ethereal bodies appear to have been immobilised, as if the photo gently imbued them with an irremediable feeling of artificiality and pictorialism.

She is constantly experimenting with her reflection on the image as a veil out in the real world, as well as in the studio: Applied to the representation of faces, this perspective is significant or even disturbing, the photos look like paintings in terms of form and the final creation. In this series, Charlotte Mano reveals a variety of influences such as art, fashion and painting, gently breaking down the boundaries by looking at her figures from a contemporary viewpoint. Are her models characters, models or even ghosts? It is uncertain.

Her photography is therefore a medium for derealisation: the image is not key to any kind of truth. These faces appear to seek calm, withdrawal, solitude, dream and fantasy.
