Camillo is interested in long-term projects adopting photography as a tool of knowledge contaminated by the self-reflective approach of anthropology.
In the last five years he has been working extensively in the valley of Kashmir, India, at first documenting the political conflict between the population and the Indian administration, and later trying to explore a more personal and oneiric approach to the issue.
He is one of the 20 artists selected for the FOAM Talent 2020. And in the same year is among the four artists selected by CAMERA - Centro Italiano per la Fotografia for the European program Futures Photography.
His first book Monsoons never cross the mountains was published by Witty Books in 2020.
His projects received several awards such as LensCulture B&W, Shortlist at PH Museum Grant, Best Rising Talent at Gomma Grant, Alexia Foundation Grant, Fotoleggendo Award, Shortlist Unseen Dummy Award.
His photographs have been exhibited in festivals, galleries and museums in US, Italy, England, Australia, Spain, India, Israel, Lithuania, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates.
