About the artist

Daura Campos is a Latinx, self-taught, lens-based artist and curator based in Belo Horizonte, Brazil; whose photographic practice challenges traditional image-making processes, although it is created using analog mediums. By deliberately disturbing the film's chemistry during processing, the artist's goal is to disrupt viewers’ predisposed expectations when confronting photographs. Daura's work is more than a meta-commentary on what it means to generate an image; The work’s subtext prompts broader conversations on the implications of existing in a dissident body.
