Daura Campos is a Latina, self-taught, lens-based artist based in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Her photographic practice challenges traditional image-making processes, revealing itself as more than a meta-commentary with a subtext that prompts broader conversations on the implications of existing in a dissident body.

Her most recent project "Secret Visibility" has been exhibited at Whippersnapper Gallery, Angelica Kauffman Gallery, Geis Gallery and in the near future will be shown at Gallery 44. This project was also awarded the CuratorSpace Artist Bursary #13 .

She was a convener of the 2021 Hemi Convergence at the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics of the New York University and the University of Chicago. Recently, she was an artist in residence at the Roundtable Residency and was awarded the Heather B. Mattera Opportunity Scholarship by StrudelmediaLive.

Daura's What the Luck series was awarded by Adolescent and exhibited in Experimental Photo Festival, Humble Arts Foundation, Make Room, and other galleries. It also was displayed on billboards in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Toronto. Earlier works have been published globally on Curated by Girls, Container Love, The Soon Project, and others.
