"On both sides of the camera,
we are all children!"
Steven Spielberg, 2016
As a photographer and director, Anne-Charlotte shows a unique artistic vision around narrative, choreographical and cinematic themes with a humor and nostalgic shift.
Born in the north of France, her interest in photography began through family shared passion for cinema from Sergio Leone to Wim Wenders and books. Storytelling is a long family story and read aloud a tradition.
As a creative and dynamic person, she practiced contemporary dance for more than 20 years, dancing for local companies before moving to Paris. She still dances for choreographers such as Olivier Dubois or (La) Horde for La Nuit Blanche, Jose Montalvo in Chaillot or with Herve Sikha.
After a five-year Master Honors Degree in Art Direction at ESAG Penninghen and a two-year Diploma in Photography at Les Gobelins in Paris, she had the opportunity to work for Rankin in London for its Rankin Live exhibition in 2010.
Upon graduation in 2010, she worked as a full time art director for a film production company before moving as a freelance photographic assistant for Sophie Delaporte. At the age of 29, she was finalist at Prix Picto in Paris for her Hopper's tribute series, and exhibited at Les Rencontres d'Arles and Aix-en Provence the same year.
At the same period, with her partner in crime, she created a renowned series called ©Where is Wally. Their duo is known as max&charlotte. This series was exhibited worldwide from Paris, Copenhagen, Shanghaï, Amsterdam to Cape Town and globally published in magazines such as Le Monde, Polka, ... seen at Canal+ and heard in France Info. The duo is still working on big staged pictures.
She has now concentrated her work on pictures around Fashion in ordinary life for brands and magazines and she has been published internationally.
Since 2015, she has realised her dream by directing films for Lancôme or Eres. In 2019, her first short-film screenplay "Early Bird" was selected in several festivals. The film is still in competition for others.
Anne-Charlotte is actually writing her new short-film and working on personal series.
