I'm Alysson Camargo, a researcher and anthropologist who focuses on Latin American Photography through a socio-anthropological approach.
I suspect every photo is a kind of map that captures a specific historical, political, and cultural instant, and I aim to scrutinize it in contemporary contexts.
I was always an observer of the world, which formed the root of my passion for seeing photographs. Images are translations of a particular perception of the world through aesthetic language.
