Carla Benzing is a London-based photographer and artist whose work is inspired by the different people and cultures encountered on her travels, defined by the central and recurrent subject of the observation of individual and groups of humans and their features, with a focus on her own generation. Her process is one of spontaneous documentation, involving the collection and curation of subjects she discovers, as well as the conceptual design and staging of her own visions. Intuition plays a large part in her creative processes, emphasising the importance of the "present" and offering thoughtful perspectives on how we live, what we expect and how we present ourselves.
In her own words
"I am inspired by everyday situations and people and scenes that I see in urban environments. Most of all I am inspired my friends and people of my own generation and other artists!"
