Biography : Charles Weber began his career in photography at a young age, signing with Gamma Agency in Paris whilst still completing his Art History degree at the University of Geneva. Having pursued a profession as a photography teacher, Weber meanwhile contributed to several projects, including the architectural census of the canton of Geneva and the foundation of the Focale gallery in Nyon. He has also responded to commissions from various institutions, such as the Geneva Photography Fund and the Valais Photographic Survey among others. His work has won multiple awards and has been exhibited both in Switzerland and internationally, with his recent work predominantly on display in Greece, where he has resided since 2007.

Artistic Statement : With my photographs, I tend to work in series, focused around either a subject, a concept or a technique. It seems to me that each new series requires a different approach, restarting from zero with a new technique, new camera, new format, new film and, most importantly, a new source of inspiration. I am convinced that an artist is never completely alone in this respect. Through my photography, I hope to be reconciled with the world. I often feel a certain tenderness for my subjects, an emotion; I can only describe it as a sort of taste of tears. This doesn’t mean we can’t share moments of great humour, or even, at times, frustration, but I want the viewer to experience, in my photographs, that feeling of emotional astonishment in their heart.
