Carlotta Cardana is an Italian editorial and commercial photographer based in London. In her personal practice, she looks at how communities are affected by economic upheaval and oppression, indigenous spirituality, the relationship between humans and their environment and at how one’s identity is shaped by the society and space he/she inhabits, such as among minorities or subcultures.

Carlotta’s work has been awarded and exhibited in numerous international galleries and festivals (see below) and is included in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery and the Parliamentary Art Collection. A selection of images from The Red Road Project is on permanent display at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

Clients include: T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Bloomberg, AFAR, De Volkskrant, L’OBS, The Telegraph Magazine, Financial Times, British Journal of Photography, Marie Claire, Domus, D Repubblica, Vanity Fair Italia.
