LomoPeople: Camilla

2

With language, we can construct an intelligible self, but not a soul. Our soul precedes, dwarfs, and transcends language, eluding all attempts to define it...what IS a soul?

Name: Camila Kerwin
Age: 20
Occupation: Student/Essayist
Dream: Open a coffee store/ book shop named “owlcove” in New York’s East Village and hold readings and performances featuring local talent.

Camila is smarter than most people you have met. And i don’t mean she just knows more than they do. I mean she’s smarter. Camila masters every challenge thrown at her. She rips on the guitar, draws incredible Tim Burton-esque black and white characters, sings with an incredible clarity of voice, and writes essays that change people. These essays literally take a person, flip them upside down, shake them a little, then maybe a little more, and then another flip. Although already published in a New York University textbook, Camila, the perfectionist, is never fully pleased with her work, but continues to write with the hope that one day she will feel complete satisfaction with a final product. Camila is a genius with passion and drive that will propel her towards her dreams.

    Photographers on Why They Still Shoot Film (Part 2)

    It is Film Photography Day, and we are counting the ways the activity fuels the imagination. One photographer likens it to the soulful sound of an LP. Another chases its risk or does it with a leap of faith. But the consensus is clear: Film photography keeps people on their toes for the best possible shot.

    5 Analog Tricks For An Aged Photo Look

    Film has soul, that second layer of grain and haze. It is a time capsule if we're sentimental, a happy pill if nostalgic. But what if we exaggerate this time-worn look? Imperfection becomes a creative element.

    Eugenia Loli's Surreal Collages

    In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.
