Trying To Step Up Your Artistic Game? Apparently Some Time In The Slammer Will Do You Good

Pocky Chinchilla September 19, 2016 September 19th, 2016

Donato Di Camillo’s Photography career started in a strange way. In prison.

As a kid, Di Camillo would pretend to take pictures with his parent’s old camera. It wasn’t until he saw the glossy magazine photos in the library of the prison where he had been sentenced as an adult, however, that he really fell in love. He started reading books and teaching himself for when he got out.

Now, for the last five years, he’s been living his dream. Taking pictures of New Yorkers in what he lovingly calls “The Fringe,” they are the faceless people around us. Now Di Camillo is out to do justice by these subjects, saying, “I feel that everybody deserves a face.”

Check out his website, and see some of his stuff below.
