Carlotta’s trajectory started in London where she picked up a camera seriously and saw the world anew.

In 2008 she completed a BA Honours in Fashion Photography at the London College of Fashion.

Since then Carlotta developed her signature style of cool urban poetics and free-flowing spirit.

The same year she moved to Rome where she started working as a photography teacher in an international school of art.

During her experience, she assisted Massimo Siragusa, photographer of Contrasto Agency.

Carlotta began to get interested in the social aspects that gravitate around places where she lives and she travels to.

So she is now completing a BA Honours in History, Anthropology and Religions at La Sapienza in Rome.

In the mean time, she has started collaborating with several theatre companies in Rome as a scenic photographer.

Her work has been exhibited mainly between Rome and Turin and acquired by public.

Carlotta divides her time between Rome and anywhere.
