Artist Statement

In 2000, Carlota quit her acting career to study photography at the Institut Fotografic de Catalunya in Barcelona. Since then, she has acted only in front of her camara.

"The Bride" is a series of self-portraits reflecting self-realization uncovered while reviewing a client's wedding photographs: in every wedding she had done, the most compelling photographs were those with the bride's face hidden.
Her self-portaits show an uncommon bride, other than the existence of white, but even that is too bright for a real wedding ritual. Another difference is darkness and happiness, but maybe in both we can find something sarcastic.
