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.
