“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” — Antoine de St.-Exupéry

This is the powerful, spiritual, sensual world known as Esprit Confus, the website of photographer Charlotte Grimm, a self-styled dreadheaded catloving artaddict. Grimm describes her style as fairytalesque, which feels right to me. There’s a lot of mystery in the photos she takes, and they make me want to know more. Grimm explored other arts before finally settling – at the ripe old age of 23 – into photography, where she clearly belongs.

“Through painting and drawing, she someday found her way into photography and got stuck in the magic of frozen moments.” -About Charlotte Grimm

There’s something primal about her vision, something elemental about her subjects. I hope you are as intrigued by her work as I am.

  1. Exceptionally lovely. Hard to believe the photographer is only 23…my goodness, what would it be like to have such talent at such a young age?

  2. Stunning photographs. The imagery feels like a blend of mythology and fairy tales and I like the desaturation.

  4. You know, I get that this is the photographer’s artistic vision. But why is it apparently impossible for any artist anywhere to have an artistic vision that involves female bodies that are not white, young, thin, and conventionally pretty? (Yes, I am exaggerating slightly, but only slightly.)

    • I hear you, but I think that the artist is, in fact, white, young, thin, and conventionally beautiful. Eventually, she’ll get older and wiser, and maybe her models will evolve along with her.

    • Why white? Because she’s in Germany. Why young, thin, and beautiful? Because who the f*ck would want to see old, fat and ugly? Because art is BEAUTIFUL. The real question here is why some people cannot accept the reality that if you are not beautiful, then you are not, and nobody is going to see you beautiful, no matter how much you want to change the standards of beauty to hide you own insecurities.

      • Germany has people of all colors, shapes, sizes, and ages. Nonetheless, I believe the artist has the right to choose whatever models inspire her.

        I do find it sad that you think only art that focuses on subjects who are young and thin and conventionally attractive is beautiful. https://www.laravisual.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/222old.jpg

        If you are currently unable to see beauty in anything but attractive young people, you are creating for yourself a narrow, ugly world. I hope you have the sense to broaden your standards for beauty before you are no longer young, or you’re going to be a miserable older person. I honestly hope that you find someone who thinks you are beautiful, even when you aren’t anymore, and I hope you can find them beautiful, too.

        Or maybe you just like to be provocative, in which case I appreciate the visit. Thanks for making me think.
