Carlotta's photographic work has been guided by her lifelong interest in place and how people and objects inhabit their settings. Having had three culturally distinct homes - New England, Northern California and East Sussex - Carlotta finds constant inspiration in the differences between their light, landscape, architecture and ways of life. As early as her teen years, she used photography to explore the relationship between people and their environments, and the connection of buildings to personal history. In all of her photographs, whether of people at work, or construction sites, or events and celebrations, she look to frame aesthetics within a decidedly human context, creating a story in each frame.
