Daura Campos

Daura Campos is a visual artist based in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Her process with 35mm film — using destruction and care — she creates photographic works where each piece is a testament to its resilience. She explores brokenness and healing, creating photographic work that pushes against assumptions of representation and is free to express itself through abstraction.

She has exhibited at Pinakothek der Moderne (Munich), Museum of Art of Pereira (Colombia), Rotterdam Photo (Rotterdam), Experimental Photo Festival (Barcelona), Open Eye Gallery (Liverpool), Gallery 44 (Toronto), and Gallery Kannski (Reykjavík), among others. Her selected awards include a high commendation from the JUST Art Award, a special mention from the Art Vue Foundation Yearly Prize, and a FORGE Fellowship.

Daura’s Classes

  • Daura teaches alternative processes for StrudelmediaLive.
I was happy to have discovered StrudelmediaLive and the Cameraless Photography class with Daura and Samanta! Thank you both for the enthusiasm, knowledge, and hard work you put into the class. I appreciated the materials you put together for each lesson — they were really thorough and looked wonderful — and that you posted them quickly. Thank you also for your observations and insights that you shared with each of us based on our individual styles and concepts. I was happy to have been in the class and expand on my knowledge of cameraless processes. You make a good team! If you teach another class or have exhibitions, please let me know.
