Robert Charlotte was born in Martinique in 1966. He has been passionate about images since childhood. He studied photography in Paris (1986-89), where he stayed to work in a studio for 10 years. It was there that he refined his photography practice. Back in Martinique, he developed a strong interest in painting and painters and an increasingly pictorial photographic art. Robert focuses on producing portraits, which powerfully express the collective history of places and individual trajectories, especially in the Caribbean.
