Born in Belgium in 1993, Charlotte Abramow has been interested in photography from an early age. Her meeting with Paolo Roversi at the Rencontres d’Arles, when she was 16, left a deep impression on her and, in 2013, she moved to Paris to study at the Gobelins, l’École de l’Image. Rewarded for her photographic work (Prix Picto de la mode in 2014, finalist of the Photo Folio Review Awards at the Rencontres d’Arles in 2015, finalist of the Prix du livre Nadar 2019 Nadar ), she tries her hand at video and has signed several music videos for the Belgian singer Angèle, as well as Les Passantes by Georges Brassens. In November 2018, she published her first book, Maurice, tristesse et rigolade (Maurice, Sadness and Laughs) and in 2020, she designed Le Petit manuel Sex Education for Netflix. Followed by more than 200,000 subscribers on Instagram, the young photographer strives to deconstruct notions of gender and beauty and to tell the human story in a poetic and humorous way.
