It’s a hard life for British photographer Charlotte Wales, who spends her days flitting across the Atlantic between New York and London.
Since graduating from London talent factory CSM in 2008 with a first class degree, Charlotte found work as Daniel Jackson’s studio manager. Turning that initial foot in the door at Studio Jackson to a launchpad into the fashion industry, Charlotte quickly established herself as a photographer in her own right. Her polished images circle femininity and youth, which have garnered the photographer editorial commissions from Vogue US, Vogue Paris, British Vogue, The Gentlewoman, New York Times – T, Dazed, 032c, POP, W and M le Monde and an enviable list of commercial clients which includes Hermes, Chloe, Celine, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Area Studio.
Charlotte has directed her lens at some of our favourite fashion mag covers during recent months from Pop to Buffalo zine, accompanying glossy-paged editorials dripping with throwback appeal pulling inspiration from magazine pages and advertising imagery from the 60s through to the 00s.
Beyond the gilded walls of the fashion industry, Charlotte’s work has filled the pages of True Photography Journal, for which the photographer shot hormone-fuelled public school educated teenagers at the notorious London under-18s party the Feathers Ball. A battleground of lip gloss-lubricated snogging and Lynx Africa, the images unlock memories of nights probably best left firmly forgotten.
