American Gothic DVD & Book:
|"The strangest interpretation of Grant Wood's work that I have ever encountered".
Smithsonian American Art Museum Curator
"That wonderful brave balance of grimness and playfulness that the early Tim Burton had with Frankenweenie and Edward Scissorhands."
"Go deep into some twisted mind where bone marrow and some other wicked looking shit walks the line between beaty and the beast."

Crazy Sexy Hollywood
|"A book for everyone who's open for an explosive mix of erotic pictures."
"Batts' pictures are enlivened by his unmistakable style. He meticulously stages his models' erotic auras. He's long since made a name for himself in the USA as an innovative newcomer. Stars of the fashion and music scene (for example, the rap musician Snoop Dog) book him for their shootings."
"One can only stare in astonishment at the creativity and inventiveness of this American, who has settled in Hollywood."
"A fantastic book full of crazy ideas and pictures of wild girls in bikinis, untamed women, and savage angels."
|In Hollywood, it seems, young and willing women stand on line to let Carlos Batts shoot photos of them in his idiosyncratic, eccentric manner. At his studio in Los Angeles, Batts transforms them into fetish divas and goddesses of lust. A few well-known porno performers also number among his models. The result is a multidimensional and unprecedented mosaic of crazily erotic photos. This is a book that every collector simply must have in his collection.
In "Wild Skin," Batts unites every conceivable form of feminine lust: gigantic silicon-implanted breasts, shaven, pierced, tattooed women. This intoxicating collection of photos shows us that a photographer can also be a true artist.
Carlos Batts's book also contains freaky and eccentric photographs for aficionados of foot eroticism, garters and sheer stockings. This and much more awaits the reader in a book that's guaranteed to raise one's pulse rate!
When was the last time that you held a large-format book in your hands, a book that boasts a generous collection of sexy legs and feet? Attention men: your long wait has finally come to an end!
Carlos Batts flirts with widely different photographic styles. The combination of bondage, masks and metal in many of his photos is unnerving and fascinating. The multicultural backgrounds of the women in these photos make Carlos Batts's book into an impressive and refreshing highlight, a genuine "United Nations" of feminine forms. And that's what immediately convinced us!

It's very impressive to see him succeed, time and time again, in finding new and surprising erotic ideas. It's also impressive to witness the ways in which he consciously and matter-of-factly integrates pornographic elements into this compositions. Welcome to the erotic photography of the Third Millennium!
