He has his own view of things.
After 10 years spent in prison, 47-year-old American Donato Di Camillo finally had the chance to travel the world as a free man. New York has changed dramatically since then, as Donato saw him last, so he, inspired by what they saw, took a camera and decided to capture this brave new world on my photographs.
Donato became interested in photography at a time when he was serving time in prison. Then he spent hours on end looking at pictures in National Geographic magazine and Time, hoping one day to start making your shots and learn the technical fundamentals of the art of photography.
In 2011, Donato was released from prison. He was put on probation, under which we had to spend three years under house arrest. Then, Donato was able in full force to pursue photography. He watched a lot of educational material on YouTube and studied various fotoblog.
Unfortunately, under the terms of house arrest, he couldn’t get away from home more than 36 meters, so the main characters of the first photos of Donato steel beetles, plants and other flora and fauna.
Finally, in 2014, Donato was allowed to move freely around the country, and he immediately began to make his stunning images. In his pictures — those who, like him, lives at the bottom of society and who we usually don’t notice.
After so much time was spent on the study of photography, Donato realized that well trained in order to become a street photographer. “Time spent in prison and under house arrest, gave me the opportunity to explore the world outside my skull,” says Donato.
“I read a lot about human behavior and psychology. I understand that you possess certain knowledge which can help me to navigate among diverse personalities of the world of the new York streets. I also have the knowledge about the collective unconscious social bottom new York, which are needed in order to capture the juice of the new York streets, in their personal terms,” — said Donato.
