(Born 1990 in Belgium)

Charles Desmet moved to Berlin in the year of 2013, originally a painter, he started photographing the following year.

As a self-taught photographer, he developed a personal approach towards his subjects. It's only after photographing and reflecting upon his work for a long period of time that a narrative presents itself. This way he becomes a subject alongside the people present in his images and an introspective quality reflects from the surface of them, a dialogue between him and what he intuitively captures on film.

Currently, Charles is living and working back in Belgium on multiple exhibitions and on building his own darkroom.
