Did you know CharlElie’s new book “New York Be CharlElie” (2011) will be released on October the 5th? Though completely different, the book is the continuation of his previous best selling photo book “New York by CharlElie” (2010). The volume regroups of course spectacular images of New York City, but most importantly images from the perspective of true New Yorker. And there’s no need to remind you that CharlElie is not just any ordinary New Yorker. His vision is to say the least intimate, innovative and enlightening. CharlElie pictures the city as a place where everything is in constant evolution – where each individual can spend his life building and rebuilding.
Make sure to order your copy online or pass by the RE-Gallery and get your autographed copy.

Did you know CharlElie’s tennis book, “Beautiful Gestures” (“Beaux Gestes”), won the Lacoste Award for best sports book of 1999? CharlElie drew most of his book during a period where he had to stop playing due to a tennis elbow injury. He took this time to observe numerous videos of professional tennis players and study precisely their technique. He figured that since he was unable to practice, he might as well learn more about the theory. His drawings, at first for the purpose of his own understanding of the game, were put together to form this spectacular award-winning book.
Later, in 2001, CharlElie participated in the book “Roland Garros 2001, Seen by the Biggest Tennis Photographers” which also won another Lacoste Award.
Did you know CharlElie’s favourite sport is tennis? In fact, he is as big as a tennis fan as you will ever find. Not only he plays at least 3 times a week, but he is also a great student of the game. He even published a book on tennis filled with drawings and lessons titled Beaux Gestes (Beautiful Gestures, 1999).
Every year he is invited to sit on the presidential seats of the French Open (Roland Garros) in Paris. You can easily notice him on the background of your TV screen when Roger Federer is serving. During the 2011 French Open, he finished in first place of the Celebrity Fast Serve contest with a 92 mph serve. Not bad for a 55 year old tennis amateur.
