My name is Carlita Lopez.
A first-generation American-Dominican born and raised in the Bronx, NY. Photography and culture has always played an important part in my life. In the birthplace of hip hop and a melting pot of creativity, I have dedicated my craft to capture the ever-changing climate of our New York community. With series like “Bodega Dreams” and “Merengue” I highlight my love for my heritage, and also giving viewers a nostalgic feeling by capturing images that are reminiscent of our upbringings in this great city that I call home.
Thank you for visiting my site, and in the words of Prince, “Peace and be wild.”
