Born in Lima, Peru in 1975, Trinidad moved to Sweden as a child. She studied photography at the School of Photography in Gottenburg and the photography academy, GFU and Jarva Atelje [art school] in Stockholm. She also attended the Gaudi Photography Institute in Lima. Trinidad has exhibited widely including at the Mitten University in Sundsvall, The Double Elvis Gallery, Stockholm; Revolver Galleria, Lima; Gallery Format Rummet, Malmo; Gallery Spark in Copenhagen; Museo de Arte de las Americas in Washington DC; the Noorderlicht Photofestival and the Living Art Museum in Reykjavik.

In 2008 her work “Naini and The Sea of Wolves” won the Swedish Photobook Award as well as having been selected the previous year for the Discovery Award at Les Rencontres d’Arles by Johan Sjostrom who said, “Carrillo’s vision is to catch the things that elude our eyes with her photographs, replacing the ‘normal vision’, which she finds inadequate, with the vision she finds through her lens instead.” It was also nominated for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize in 2008.
