“I like to photograph anything. Everything is a potential shot. Don’t close your eyes; don’t close your mind.”
Some pictures can fill you with happiness; others can put your eyes in a sort of trance. When observing the work of Carlos Campo, you will always have an emotion coming over you, and it will make you feel as if for that single moment, you were also in that photograph. The Venezuelan photographer gave us an inside look on how he captures the moments in his photography.
“When you look at my photographs, you’ll always notice something different” says Carlos. His work intrigues viewers to really just stop and take in the moment rather than giving it a quick glance. Using natural lighting creates a level of intimacy and an aura of authenticity. Different details start to emerge when taking in that instant of time. “I want people to genuinely enjoy what I have to offer.” He shares much of his art in black and white due to the inspiration that is drawn from nature photographer, Clyde Butcher. Similar to Clyde, Carlos loves to photograph the world around him, whether that includes portraits or everyday items.
A photography class during his junior year in High school is what helped expose him to art. Finding out about a contest that was being held within the school motivated him to submit a piece. To his surprise, Carlos ended up winning, and his work is now featured in the permanent collection of the school. He continues to work on different projects in Miami and his ultimate goal is to be featured in a New York gallery.
