32 ARTIST PROFILE Charlotte Fraigneau

Drowning, 2018

Charlotte Fraigneau

A

curiosity runs through French photographer Charlotte Fraigneau’s work, both in her subject matter and her approach to shooting new images. Working in both analogue and digitally creating portraiture and documentary images, her photographs explore human conditions and psychology. Her current ongoing series, 'Deluge', in particular explores the mental, physical and emotional responses of being overwhelmed. Through underwater photography and digital manipulation, the series shows a single figure subjected to the suffocating consequences of

drowning, being buried alive and set on fire. The intense images portray the metaphysical human experiences of extreme circumstances; the moments where time stands still through a heavy affliction. Based in Cambridge, where she recently graduated from Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University, with a Photography degree, Fraigneau has had work included in group shows in Cambridge, London and Prague. Her Photographs have been shortlisted in several art prizes. charlottefraigneau.com charlotte.fraigneau@gmail.com
