Charlotte Abramow was born in Belgium in 1993. As a kid, she tried her hand at photography, and confirmed her passion for the art form at the young age of 13 and from there her journey began.

At 16, Charlotte met Paolo Roversi during an internship at The Rencontres d’Arles festival. At 17, in parallel with high school, Charlotte began working on various projects with Belgian magazines and startup brands; and notably got on the cover page of ELLE Belgium. At 19, Charlotte moved from Belgium to France to study at The Gobelins School of Images in Paris. At 20, Charlotte won the Picto Young Fashion Photography Award 2014. At 21, Charlotte graduated and soon after was named one of the finalists at the Photo Folio Review Awards of The Rencontres d’Arles festival 2015. At the festival, that same year, she also got a chance to present her project “The Real Boobs”. Charlotte’s work, since 2014, has mainly focused on women’s relationship with their bodies, and the body throughout its stages of life. Uneasy topics, she stages in absurd surrealistic ways.

At 24, Charlotte made her first steps as a director with two music videos for the Belgian rising star singer Angèle “La Loi de Murphy” and “Je Veux Tes Yeux”.  In 2018, Charlotte directed a music video for Georges Brassens, “Les Passantes”, which was released on March 8th for the International Women’s Day. However, on that same day, YouTube censored the video for “offensive content” to children under 18. The music video received the “Women’s Rights Prize” awarded by the Secretary of State of the department of Equality between men and women.

On November 3, 2018, Charlotte released her first book “Maurice, Tristesse et Rigolade” which retraces the reconstruction and rebirth of her father who suffered from cancer, and a coma that left him with brain damage.

In 2019, Charlotte directed Angèle’s activist feminist video “Balance Ton Quoi”, that depicts a trial against sexism and an “Anti-Sexism Academy”.”
