Carlos Batts had an unbelievable creative force. He was an award-winning artist, photographer and director. He was also one of the pioneers in the alt-porn scene, leading the way for its present moment of glory. Because of the revolutionary force in the female characters he depicted, he was even able to receive a Feminist Porn Award in the "Indie Porn Icon" category. Batts was married to the adult performer April Flores, his muse and the protagonist of his last photographic work: Fat Girl. He passed away in Los Angeles at the age of 40.
