"[Carlos Betancourt] bends the lines between art, photography, and nature in his photographs, collages, painting, installations, and conceptual pieces. Betancourt's imagery reinterprets the past and present and offers it in a new context. . . This exuberant volume explores Betancourt's body of work, with more than 250 images and texts..."

"Don't let the title fool you - there's nothing imperfect about this volume. . . Included are more than 250 images of Betancourt's vast oeuvre, which heavily focuses on blurring the lines between and experimenting with imagery, fine art, and nature, as well as exploring themes of memory, beauty, identity, and communication. If you like the glitz of Warhol mixed with the sharper aesthetic of Rauschenberg, you'll enjoy his work, and this tome that draws its title from the name of Betancourt's studio, Imperfect Utopia."
This exuberant volume explores Carlos's 25-year-old career with more than 250 images and texts. . . Everything in Carlos's work is rooted in the idea of memories, beauty and nature. Consummate dexterity in many different mediums including photography, collage, painting, assemblage and sculpture have allowed Carlos to develop his very own visual language which is as vast as the amount of colors, symbols and materials that he uses."
