Carlota Figueras Biography


An up and coming Spanish artist, Carlota Figueras is inspired by baroque images of saints and martyrs. Her photographs are marked by stark contrasts of light.

She says of her work: Photography allows me to exist in two parallel worlds: that of creator and of actress, and with these two roles I can access any person or situation to tell what I feel.
