MY NAME IS KAMILO. I AM IN MY LATE 20S, AND I HAVE BEEN LUCKY ENOUGH TO TURN MY PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY INTO A PROFESSIONAL CAREER FOR THE PAST DECADE, DOING COMMERCIAL WORK AND AT THE SAME TIME BUILDING UP A LIBRARY OF UNIQUE SNAPSHOTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD. IN 2016 I GRADUATED FROM BROOKS INSTITUTE WITH A BFA IN PHOTOGRAPHY. I SPENT THE NEXT TWO YEARS WORKING FOR ANNIE LEIBOVITZ AS A PHOTO ASSISTANT. OUT OF ALL THE PROJECTS WE DID, PERHAPS HER ARCHIVE EXHIBITION, ’THE EARLY YEARS,’ LEFT THE BIGGEST IMPRESSION ON ME. ANNIE PERSONALLY CURATED THE SHOW WITH HER WORK FROM 1970 TO 1983 - THE STORIES OF HER EARLY CAREER. SHOT ON FILM, THEY WERE ARCHIVED AS WORK PRINTS AND CONTACT SHEETS WHICH I DUG THROUGH FOR MONTHS. I WOULD ENLARGE IMAGES THAT ANNIE CHOSE FOR THE SHOW; WHICH FEATURED OVER 4,000 BY IT'S COMPLETION. IT OPENED IN 2017, AT THE LUMA FOUNDATION’S PARC DES ATELIERS IN ARLES, FRANCE. SEEING ANNIE’S EARLY WORK IN SUCH A RAW FORM WAS INSPIRING. IT TAUGHT ME TO CAPTURE EVERYTHING AND THROW AWAY NOTHING.

RECENTLY I’VE BEEN WORKING ON COLLECTIONS FROM MY OWN ARCHIVE AND SIMULTANEOUSLY STUDYING BLOCKCHAIN. IT HAS REALLY CONNECTED ME WITH MY CREATIVE ROOTS AND TRANSFORMED HOW I THINK ABOUT EXHIBITIONS AND BUSINESS. MANY OF MY SNAPSHOTS AREN’T PUBLISHED, WHICH IS WHY I CREATED THIS WEBSITE. I’VE BEEN SAVING THEM FOR SOMETHING SPECIAL, AS THESE IMAGES ARE SPECIAL TO ME. THESE ARE MOMENTS THAT HAPPEN ALONG THE WAY, PERSONAL PROJECTS, AND THINGS I’VE DOCUMENTED. IT’S IMPORTANT TO ME THAT THEY ARE SEEN AND THAT PEOPLE HAVE THE CHANCE TO INTERACT WITH THEM AND OWN THEM WHETHER THEY ARE          OR       . I AM AS DEDICATED TO MY COLLECTORS AS I AM TO MY CRAFT AND IM EXCITED THAT BLOCKCHAIN ALLOWS FOR SO MANY

THE IMAGE YOU SEE BELOW IS OF AN ALLUVIAL FAN IN KERN COUNTY, CA. CAPTURED AT SUNRISE BY AIRCRAFT, THE CREVASSES ARE ILLUMINATED WITH THE LOW ANGLE OF THE SUN. I TOOK IT DURING A SERIES OF FLIGHTS I DID WITH MY FRIEND MARC IN 2015. I PUT IT HERE BECAUSE IT'S THE IMAGE THAT UNLOCKED PHOTOGRAPHY FOR ME. IT SHOWED ME THAT ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
