Carlos Alvarez Montero
Carlos Alvarez Montero (b.1974, Mexico) is a native from Mexico city. His work focuses on the relationship between appearance and the creation of identity. After 12 years of working in Mexico City for editorial clients, ad agencies and record labels he decided to take his photography to higher levels by moving to New York to complete a two year MFA program in photography, video and related media at the School of Visual Arts (SVA). During a two year absence from the Mexican photography scene he roamed the streets of New York capturing the diversity of it’s inhabitants. This led him to several projects like Harlem Shuffle, Covers (Adopt & Adapt) and Hidden Identities.
