I’m Carla…Photography for me is more than taking pictures, photography is my emotional language, the way I see the world and the way I communicate. My emotions and values are inseparable from my photographs and they are as much about me as they are about my subjects.
My photography draws from a deep empathy and fascination for the human spirit and it is about honesty, beauty and joy. My pictures are playful and full of movement and often there is a twist of nostalgia, a peeling wall or a glimpse of faded grandeur looming in the background. You could call me romantic but without the schmaltz!
I take risks. I fly to the other side of the world on a photographic hunch, walk up the last street at the top of the hill, push open doors I shouldn’t, to find that special photo I have been looking for.
Sometimes I tread quietly waiting for that fleeting moment to come to me and other times I provoke it, I am noisy and loud wanting life to bounce off me straight into my camera.
