About the artist

French multimedia artist Charlotte Yonga graduated with honors from the Art School of Paris-Cergy. Afterwards, she started her professional career as a documentary photographer. A strong fascination for different realities led her to travel and work in a variety of countries. She lived in Cameroon, Oakland (USA), Tangier (Morocco) and Barcelona, among others. As she does not limit herself to one location, Yonga does not limit herself to one form of art - a child of her time, she expresses her vision through photography, video and sound installations alike.

Yonga feeds herself with reality as it presents itself. She recieves wide acclaim for her authentic portraits of ordinary people. Those portraits are always set in an authentic and characteristic context – but they never feel harsh. By using soft light and slightly washing out the colours, Yonga impregnates her work with a compassionate, gentle touch. In her "Lower Bottom" series, she portrayed inhabitants of the impoverished part of Oakland; her "Co-wives" series reveals portraits of the wives of a polygamous Cameroonian king. She gives a face to those who aren’t normally seen.
