Born in Marseille, Charlotte Lapalus (b. 1987) is a photographer full of passion – eager to connect to audiences through warm, inviting images. She often works to bring the female experience to the foreground – using contemporary architecture and natural surroundings as playgrounds for the senses. In this way, she translates fashion photography into something more tactile and rooted. The works transfer a feeling – the touch of a material, feet weighting into the ground, a shadow across the face. Sunlight is used as a soft, intimate detail. It falls through windows and across each of the models as a connective thread, easing the edges and diffusing both interior and exterior landscapes with an almost affectionate glow. Burnt oranges, pale blues and balmy yellows move through the pages as a confident and consistent aesthetic. Lapalus’ various credits include Isabel Marant, Seasonly, Veja, Marie-Claire France, Milk Magazine, Schön, NR, L’Oréal and more. www.charlottelapalus.com.
Californian Amy Harrity’s subjects are rendered universal by their relative anonymity, frozen in the most human of moments and postures.
With a thematic focus on staged worlds, Clemens Ascher’s photographic series In the Garden is a bright depiction of utopia.
