WE HAVE MOVED…

HOME TO HERE….www.charlatan-mag.com

We no longer use this site so catch us over at the one above for all our happenings and what’s going on!! To get in touch contact us on hello@charlatanmag.com

Charlatan is a female-driven lifestyle brand which ecompasses a digital magazine, events and much more for those alternative savvy females seeking a new answer to their daily read or partying antic’s. We understand they easily become filthy bad habits. But no arm patches needed, just add Charlatan into you’re life and you’re sorted. We update the site daily, and yes even at weekends to keep you in the know!

Based in the UK, we support the best home-grown talent – from the unknown seeds on the underground, to lofty superstars at the top of the pop-culture tree. You may be surprised to hear it, but Charlatan love is totally Universal. Set aside any thoughts of snobbery, because we welcome men, women and drooling babies to the Charlatan party.

Our guest list is deeper than a porn-stars libido, but we pride ourselves on offering everyone a passport to our unique world, which offers more than just pink nail polish and boy-talk.

Ellis Scott exhibition

Our good friend ellis who shot our first shoot is having his first solo show! The private view is tomorrow but it runs until the 20th September, so if you cant see it tomorrow then you have no excuse!

The full write up:
“Digitaria are proud to announce the launch of Scott’s first solo show debuting his reportage work.

Ellis Scott is a London based photographer working predominantly in fashion and reportage. He regularly contributes to magazines such as Dazed and Confused, in both the UK and Japan, ID, Creative Review, Marmalade and Pix Zine. Since 2005 Scott has been making a name for himself as a documenter of the London club scene, shooting nights such as Anti Social and All You Can Eat. As a result of these outings he began a working relationship with performance artist Scottee, with whom he has produced a book, due for release in late 2009, which documents their photo shoots and reportage images from the past 4 years. In 2006 Scott shot half of the Spring/Summer 2007 Alexander McQueen McQ campaign, art directed by Nicola Formichetti, which appeared on billboards and in magazines globally. Later that year, Formichetti, as the new Creative Director of Dazed and Confused, asked Scott to start contributing to the magazine. Dazed and Confused has featured many of his images since, including a 10 page spread covering the “Love Noise” Converse rock tour of China. In 2008 Scott graduated from the London College of Fashion with a BA degree in Fashion Photography. In February 2009, after being featured by Gareth Pugh in Time Out as one of London’s “New Young Fashion Elite”, he shot Pugh’s Autumn/Winter Womenswear Lookbook. At present, Scott is putting the finishing touches to his book with Scottee and preparing for future exhibitions.
