Carlotta has been selected as one of the winners of the Lens Culture Award with her project on Mod Couples, and been featured in their latest issue dedicated to new and emerging talents.

And on the moving image front, Phone Box – a short film directed by Marcos Villaseñor and photographed by Carlotta – has been awarded Best Short Film at the Terracotta Film Festival. Phone Box is still in the festival circuit, so unfortunately it’s not available to see online yet.
