Born and raised in Italy, Carlotta moved to the States to attend college at the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design.  She graduated with a BFA in Fine Arts/Photography in 2003. Now based in NY, she often spends time in Europe.

Her work deals with the representation of moments of intimacy in every day life. The image making plays with the ability to be allowed into the most private states, or even solitudes, of her subjects who are portrayed in the beauty, anxiety and decadence of their fleeting youth. Her work comes accross as dreamy, soft yet somewhat dark, a cold romanticism.
