John Ciamillo lensed a series of portraits for Bambi Issue 9. The collection of black and white photographs is simple, yet holds complex emotional weight. Ciamillo's artistic direction is simple, yet dynamic. The photos are compositionally quiet, lending all expressive power to the models. Each piece evokes a sense of hard-earned wisdom and a melancholic air.

John Ciamillo is a New York-based photographer. His portraiture work is a subtle reflection of the city attitude: gritty and raw. His perspective centralizes reality, focusing on the authentic feelings of the models. The posing in Bambi Issue 9 is tender yet sure, quite like the way emotions can come spilling out of a human being.
