Chantal infuses her projects with people-focused storytelling, exposing the realness of her subjects within a sculptural, artful frame. Rather than focusing solely on a visual end-product, she leans into the subtleties and emotional intelligence of human beings to draw out the aesthetic she’s celebrated for. She's maintained this aura throughout her career: first as a journalist and radio reporter, then as a stills photographer (although she met her first camera as an eight-year-old), then, naturally, as a filmmaker — where her interviewing and picture-making skills converge.

Well established as a leading photographer consistently documenting the cutting-edge of pop culture for the likes of The New York Times and Vogue, her directorial debut, Migratory, won best cinematography at the Milano Fashion Film Festival in 2016. She has been recognized by the Art Director Club Young Guns, and was named one of PDN’s “30 Photographers to Watch” in 2019.
