Antoine Lecharny

Photographer - Young Talents 2021

Guest of the Tremplin jeunes talents 2021

Antoine Lecharny

Antoine Lecharny is a photographer and visual artist, born in 1995. At the age of twenty, he went to Transylvania to photograph and share the life of Roma families in the slums of Deva.
At their side, he seeks to capture the ties that bind these families together and their relationship to an often hostile environment. This work, awarded at the Grand Prix Paris Match du Photoreportage étudiant, was presented at the Hôtel de Ville de Paris in 2019.
Then, little by little, Antoine Lecharny begins to photograph differently and then discards a purely documentary intention without ever ceasing to pay attention to the singularity of people and the places they inhabit. In parallel to his photographic work
he has been practicing drawing and sculpture for years. Winner of the Audi Talents 2020 prize with Henri Frachon, he will exhibit his latest sculptural project "hole, triangle, rush, doucine and dissonance" at the Palais de Tokyo in 2021.

Antoine Lecharny in Normandy - Window 

In a succession of round trips by train between Deauville and Paris, Antoine Lecharny captures from his window the landscape that is offered to travelers; the rails, the farmhouses, the apartment blocks... By night, by day, Antoine Lecharny draws a portrait of this journey punctuated by the appearance of faces.
