Daniel Alexander Camargo-Grosso

Daniel Camargo-Grosso (he/she/they) is a queer visual artist born in South Wales now based in Bristol where they have recently completed a BA(Hons) in Photography.

Specialising in image-making, Daniel experiments with a range of digital and analogue camera equipment. Their passion for documenting current countercultures while creating fashion-based editorials that disrupt heteronormativity is rooted from personal experiences when being introduced to the underground LGBTQ+ club scene within England. This led Daniel to begin a strong path in curation and creative direction soon after the final lockdown in England where they founded Conqueer; a grassroots organisation aimed at bringing group art

exhibitions, performance art, fashion shows, live music and rave events for the alternative queer community to Bristol.
