Photography

March, Charlotte (1929 - 2005)

The German photographer who had established her classic practice during the 1950s, found in the launching of the pioneering unconventional magazine TWEN, in the 1960s, the possibility of creating experimental and challenging images - ‘I could begin making fashion photographs without any conventions nor rules inhibiting my creativity’. A rare successful photographer of her era, Charlotte March was remarked for her strikingly contrasting black and white compositions and the unusual poses her models would take, an aesthetic that ensued from Surrealism. A combative non-conformist, the photographer not only produced highly artistic images, but also pioneered the fashioning of black portraiture.
