Carlos David

Self-taught celebrity, portrait and fashion photographer Carlos David manages full productions as well as one on one sessions. Published in The New York Times, Time Out NY, Elle Slovenia, The Fashionisto, Marketing Age, Kaltblut and Professional Artist to name a few. Among his clients are Friends of the Highline, Artspace, and Instituto Cervantes.

His latest personal project, PERSONAE, has been an itinerary exhibit in galleries around New York City and it’s scheduled for an international tour next year. In this series, David explores the intricate relationship between the way we see ourselves in both idealized and fantastical manifestations and the objective reality captured by the camera and the observer. The focus of his work is to create a diverse community drawn together by the collective action of revealing their fantasies and dreams. His process invites participants to transform into their alter ego or a character of their choice, ehnabling freedom of expression. And yet in the act of doing so, the subjects can explore and reveal more profound and hidden parts of themselves. Education: Hispanic Literature, UNAM, Mexico.
