About Charlotte Mano

Photographer and video maker based in Paris.


BIOGRAPHY


After a double curriculum in modern literature and cultural communication, Charlotte Mano joined the Gobelins school and graduated in 2017. While it apparently unfolds around several themes (the body, space, darkness), her work never ceases to question the image: its power of representation and its transparency, but also its own limits. There are memories, characters, landscapes, sensations, all translated into a toned-down, contemplative, somewhat nostalgic atmosphere. Her eclectic influences include nineteenth-century fantasy literature, contemporary Chinese symbolist and surrealist painting, and plastic artists such as Oscar Muñoz. Her practice is striking in that it delivers a promising and singular vision of photography that she never ceases to explore and question, moved by constant invention. Charlotte Mano continually experiments with all possible means, defying the image and its forms to make her photography unsettling.
