Biography

Chantal Stoman is a French, Paris-based photographer. 

The work of Chantal Stoman is part of an approach based on a thorough observation of the relationship between man and his intimacy and the City.

 

 

She began with A WOMAN’S OBSESSION, observing the special relationship between Japanese women and the world of European luxury brands. 

 

 

Broadening her focus, it is from the elevated freeways that Chantal Stoman continued to observe the humanity hidden in the heart of the major cities of the world with LOST HIGHWAY, A PHOTO PROJECT. Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Cairo, Hong Kong, Mumbai, LOST HIGHWAY tells this tale shared by the great cities, where borders no longer exist.

 

 

This passion for the contemporary and its massive embodiment – the «city-world», in a continuous extension from  Tokyo to Sao Paulo – does not hinder the sensivity of her vision of the vertical city and how we live in the thickness of Time. 

 

 

The work realized by Chantal Stoman, first in Rome, then in Jerusalem, through her projects L’IMAGE CULTE and WALKING DISTANCE, testifies to a tropism towards «myth cities». These cities narrate History and their history so profoundly. Her attention to details – the tracking of a sense, a direction – introduces a questioning, a poetic suspense, adding to the photography the promise of a continuation. 

 

 

In 2016, invited for an artist-in-residence in Cambodia, she immersed herself in the intimacy of Phnom Penh, a city she knew nothing about, giving birth to a new project ; VIEWS.

 

 

Chantal Stoman is now working on a new photographic project entitled ŌMECITTA, thanks to the CNAP’s support for contemporary documentary photography. A complementary video project between cinema, art and documentary is also in progress.
