LomoPeople: Camilla


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.
