Charlotte Schmitz studied photojournalism and documentary photography at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Hanover. While living in Istanbul in the past three years, she worked for several german and international media outlets. Charlotte speaks six languages, including Turkish and Spanish.
Charlotte has developed very consistent and original work about the issues that affect her as a young contemporary woman. She is building a very interesting narrative using compelling images to convey a deliberately personal approach. She has given proof of her courage in experimenting with new languages that challenge the traditional documentary perspective. Her work brings a breath of fresh air to the classic way of exposing contemporary issues.
