Born and raised in France, Charles’ passion for photography started at the early age of 11 when he was given his first camera. His photography is characterised by its simplicity and attention to detail. There is nothing to explain or interpret, just the mystique and poetry his vision entails. However, Charles talent is not limited to photography as he creates his own sets and props, often combining his creative vision with his passion for origami, the art of paper folding.
These balloons invasions are metaphors. They aim to change the point of view towards our everyday finds that we pay no attention to. It is our view that he tries to sharpen and to move from a practical perception to visual emotion.
