What the Luck series is a marriage between the concept of luck and failure in both analogue photography and relationships. I purposefully damaged my negatives, making it impossible to create "the perfect shot." The photographs present a failed relationship, by following the subject's point of view, from left to right and vice versa, the final image is of her, alone.
Daura Campos is a Latinx, self-taught, lens-based artist based in Belo Horizonte, Brasil. Through analogue experimentation, her work prompts broader conversations on existing in a dissident body. Daura is a 2022 The Alternative Art School and FORGE fellow, she was a convener at the 2021 Hemi Convergence by the New York University and the University of Chicago. Daura has exhibited her photographic work in the Analog Film Photography Association, Orlando, FL (2022), Gallery 44, Toronto (2022), Experimental Photo Festival, Barcelona, ES (2021), and more. Her work was also displayed on billboards in Times Square, NY (2021), Los Angeles (2021), Chicago (2021), and Toronto (2021). Her moving-image work was screened in South and North America at the Museum of Art of Pereira, Colombia (2021), the Avant Garde Cultural Center, Bogotá, Colombia (2021), at the No Nation Art Lab, Chicago (2021), and more.
