Positioning the human figure in bright and fluid landscapes, Mache del Campo photographs silhouetted and distant figures with a singular humanity. Bodies in del Campo’s photos are integrated into landscapes filled with clouds, large bodies of water, or even puddles on patterned streets. In each space, the forms mingle, altered and at the same time recognizably expressive. Even in images that show the true figure and face of the subject, motion and action integrate the individual with their surroundings. Arms and legs seamlessly stretch through each composition, or stay static and quiet among a more imposing natural scene. In each case, del Campo demonstrates an ability to capture the personality of humans and environments, allowing shimmering water or fog to play off of dynamic bodies, somehow more solid than a silhouette despite the amorphous reality of water or mist.
Based in Buenos Aires, Mache del Campo interprets the world through feeling and fantasy, suspending place and time. Simultaneously, her works capitalize on portraiture to more deeply interact with each place she visits. She studied photography at El Baldío Móvil art space and has exhibited across Argentina, Uruguay, and the U.S. Most recently, Del Campo had a solo exhibition at The Argentine Embassy in Washington, D.C. in February 2016 and in December 2015, one of her photos was selected to be exhibited in "The Beauty of Humanity" collection at the SCOPE Art Fair in Miami, FL. She has also edited and published several books, including "Inspiring Gaze," a collection of her artistic photos, and "World Portraits," a series of portrait photography of the people she's met on her world travels.
