Amanda Charchian is a talented artist and photographer residing in LA. While earning her BFA at Otis College of Art and Design, she began exploring the state of alienation through realms of the spiritual, psycho-social, and physical human condition. Her artwork is deeply surrealistic, romantic and satisfying. Most of her shoots often start with clothes and end up with the naked girl. To her, skin is more honest and raw than fashion; she does not want to make work that is decoration for someone else’s art. Amanda uses analog cameras, as she believes that “film captures the energy that is emitted from organic matter better than digital does.” She is inspired by mystery, the occult sciences, surrealism, women, and the complicated relationship between dark and light.
