Man Who Taught Himself Photography in Prison…

The photographs taken by Donato Di Camillo are raw, revealing, and real—three qualities that the artist shares with his work. Struggling through his early adult life, Di Camillo served a prison sentence that strangely would become some of the most formative years in his life. He spent hours in the institution’s library, studying psychology, human behavior, and art mediums. “It allowed me time to learn about the world outside my mind,” he says. It was prison where Di Camillo learned how to be a photographer. It was prison where he learned how to read and understand the human face. 📷: Donato Di Camillo
