Carlo Armendariz is a contemporary artist and photographer. He was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He wrote and played music for 12 years in the Northern New Mexico music circuit. At 24 he decided to pursue his passion for photography. Primarily self-taught, he photographs women in ephemeral and exquisite contexts with romantic undertones—some are entirely bare, while others are draped in flowing fabrics, beautiful lingerie, or seductive underwear. His images of women tend to be dreamy and sculptural.
His work calls into question our awareness and ideals towards the notions of beauty, reminiscence of love, lust and languishing desire.
