Salvino Campos - Artist
Salvino Campos was born in Brazil, in Quartel Geral (the State of Minas Gerais). He began to work professionally there when he moved to Porto Alegre in 1992, where, in 1995, he had his first exhibition. The same year he moved to Brasilia. In the capital he worked as an assistant in the fields of advertising and fashion, which enabled him to mature professionally and to experiment with different working methods, with, for example, the use of light and large scale reproduction. Studied at the ICP (International Center of Photography) in New York. Cartier Bresson's statement that "taking photographs is a means of understanding" is relevant for Campos, who is continually seeking a synthesis between art and anthropology.
This is the source of his personal and original artistic journey and gives him the flexibility to deal with different subjects and different styles: from his studies of faces, bodies and also landscape, where he reveals its symbolic aspects. The taking of a photograph thus becomes a question of surroundings, of spaces and of their evocative power.
The personal reflections of Campos are those of someone working in the tradition of post- modernism, especially where man and his traditions in a globalized world are concerned. In this new dimension, the ethic which Campos makes his own accentuates his personal style and reveals his social and humanist commitment.
He lives and works in Naples and in Rio de Janeiro.
