Constantin Schlachter b. 1992, France, is an artist based in Paris who works mainly with photography. Nature, invisible and matter are dominant entities in Schlachter's work. Using them, he creates sensorial fictions while examining reminiscence, mental landscapes and a spiritual return to Nature. In his approach all notions of realism are voided, and are replaced with abnormal colours, subjects and textures. He works in an instinctive way, constituting a continuous stream of pictures, in which projects punctuate that flow by crystallizing his evolving feelings.
He obtained a Photography Diploma at Gobelins, l'école de l'image in Paris in 2014. In 2016 he exhibited in the collective exhibition “Planet B-100 ideas for a new world” at the NRW-Forum in Dusseldörf. He was selected through the Foam Talent Call 2015 to have his portfolio published in Foam Magazine #42: Talent (2015) and was part of the Foam Talent exhibition traveling from Paris (Atelier Neerlandais) to Brussels (De Markten) and London (Beaconsfield Gallery). His dummy, Deux-fois-né was shortlisted at the Unseen Dummy Award (2015), le Photobook Fest (2015), Fiebre Photobook Dummy Award (2015) and at the Breadfield Dummy Award 2016. He was also shortlisted for the Hariban Award 2015
