Carlos Loret de Mola was born in Havana, Cuba and currently makes his home in Hudson, New York. He received a Bachelor degree in Visual Arts from Georgia State University. After a decade-long career of freelance photography and digital imaging in New York City, he relocated to Hudson, where he began his current art practice.
His photography has been exhibited in group shows at the Atlanta Photography Gallery and at the Mattress Factory, also in Atlanta, Georgia. His work was selected for the Center for Photography at Woodstock’s "Regional Triennial of the Photographic Arts" and published in their magazine "PHOTOGRAPHY Quarterly".
His work was exhibited in "The Uncanny Valley" at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art in New Paltz, New York. In 2010, his work was included in "(Por)trait Revealed" at Rayko Photo Center in San Francisco and in the Photography Forum exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, where his photographs are in its permanent collection. His solo exhibition "Being Upstate" was presented at the Center for Photography in Woodstock in 2011. His publications have been exhibited at the Tokyo Institute of Photography, at Baxter Street / Camera Club of New York and at Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, New York.
Complementing his work as an artist, Carlos has curated exhibitions of self-published photo-based printer matter at Syracuse University in 2011 and at the Center for Photography at Woodstock in 2016. Also in 2011, he worked as a project manager for Magnum Photos' landmark "Postcards From America" project and he spoke about photozines at the Contemporary Artists' Books Conference, part of the New York Art Book Fair at MOMA PS1.
