During the past two decades Gary Campbell has been traveling and working in very remote parts of the world. As a result, he’s had the privilege to interact and photograph people he would otherwise never be able to engage with…
Gary shared his thoughts about his solo show “Espíritus Anónimos de América del Sur”
“I succumbed to the allure of photographing these often forgotten and endangered indigenous people of the the regions.
I am drawn to the strength, pride and dignity of the people; to the willingness of them to share their rituals and allowing me the privilege of photographing them.
Setting up a makeshift studio in the villages allows me to remove my subjects from their immediate environments and photograph them against neutral backgrounds, to isolate them if you will. I want all attention focused on their presence; any other reference within the image I feel would be distracting.”
