COM alumnus named a ‘photographer to watch’
Photojournalism alumnus Peter DiCampo (’05) is 1 of 30 “new and emerging photographers to watch,” according to a new feature by Photo District News, the leading photography magazine in the country.
From PDN’s profile of DiCampo:
DiCampo was attracted to photography by an interest in the exotic. “I assumed I would photograph conflict,” he says. But “the exotic became familiar” in Ghana, and he became more interested “in communicating specific issues and trying to connect people.” Following advice he’d been given in the VII Mentor Program, he’s been using his photography to engage with NGOs, energy companies and other audiences. “I’ve used these opportunities to contribute to the dialogue on energy poverty; I’ve found a voice.”
