Coralie Monnet (born 1990, Nantes, France) is a French photographer who's been living for the past 5 years in between France and the UK.
Her work has a strong focus on storytelling, using a poetic documentary style to capture those unique relationships and connections between her subjects. Coralie is naturally drawn to the beauty she finds everywhere, in those everyday moments that are so precious, yet often overlooked or forgotten.
Her interest is in capturing time evolution, details and ordeals, especially in the lived minutiae of everyday life.
Coralie’s images encapsulate treasured memories and candid narratives, embodying the feelings and emotions in those spontaneous, fleeting instants.
