Carlos Tarrats

“Tarrats’ message is so important that he refers to these plant photographs as “portraits.” He adds that these are not primarily self-portraits in any metaphorical sense, but rather more general investigations into life’s brief but extraordinary moments of being. He asks,, “What if all of those moments were compressed into a single frame? How do you visually represent the sum of those moments?”

Tarrats prints digitally and organizes his work in a series, with 10–25 prints in an edition.

Based out of Los Angeles, CA, Carlos Tarrats does both commercial and fine art photography. He received a BA in Art Studio at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and a BFA in Photography at the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA. His work has been featured in both exhibitions and print media nationally. He is the winner of the 2006 International Photography Award for Fine-Art Still Life.
