Born in 1979 from a French mother and a Lebanese father, Cyrille Charro grew up between these two countries. Torn between two cultures, he feels disconnected from both of them, which leads him to question the concept of identity.
Cyrille studied photography at Lyon’s school of applied art.
Now established in London, his photography explores the schizophrenic dualities of attraction and repulsion. Working often, but not exclusively, with portraiture to make manifest a visual aesthetic of voyeuristic intimacy and psychological intensity.
Working with a range of photographic media appropriate to each project or subject, whether black and white or colour, or more recently 3D and animated lenticular, he aims to create visual statements that are both seductively arresting and disturbingly impactful.
