Loredana Denicola took a degree in ‘Economics’ spending time working in the corporate world before moving to London in 2010.

Interview: Charlie Wayne

Luca Curci talks with Charlie Wayne during OXYGEN – FRAGMENTED CITIES+IDENTITIES Jorge Jurado Gallery.

Charlie Wayne (France, 1975) is a visual artist obsessed by the place of reality in a world where image is queen. His fascination for photography arises from feelings experienced at the age of 14 when he discovers the work of photographer Anton Corbijn.
Teenager, his parents give him his first Polaroid camera, which probably led to his affection for the square format. His passion for music brings him to concert halls where he gains his first recognition as a photographer.
