is a French photographer.
Born and raised in France, Charles’ passion for photography started at the early age of 11 when he was given his first camera. His photography is characterised by its simplicity and attention to detail. There is nothing to explain or interpret, just the mystique and poetry his vision entails. However, Charles talent is not limited to photography as he creates his own sets and props, often combining his creative vision with his passion for origami, the art of paper folding. His editorial career started with his contribution to Numéro, Vogue Russia and Muse Magazine. Charles Petillon currently resides in Paris.
