André Carrara builds up his subjects like a movie lover and his work is rich in cinematic references . In the manner of Rosselini, Bergman or Bunuel, who magnified their muses in Stromboli, Personna, Belle de Jour..., Andre pays tribute to these masterpieces with wonderful pictures directly inspired from the scenes of these movies. André Carrara creates beautiful women portraits, making up a story he unfolds in each of his reportages, looking for a scenery, setting an atmosphere, choosing his heroine, imagining his mises-en-scene.’
Andre Carrara has worked closely with the greatest talents of Fashion editorial and photography of his time: Antoine Kieffer for Vogue France who discovered his work; Helene Lazareff and Roman Cieslewitz for Elle, Anna Wintour for Allure in the 1990’s, art directors Walter Rospert and Fred Rawiler for Marie-Claire and Marie-Claire bis, to name of few.
