There’s a sweet write-up about Homelands’ Bear Guerra on the Dispatches from Latin America section of the American Illustration and American Photography (AI-AP) website. Bear was recently honored in the group’s Latin America Fotografía competition for his ongoing series featuring his and Ruxandra Guidi‘s daughter, Camila.

“I’m hoping to capture something universal, something that not only other parents can appreciate, but all of us who were once children can, too,” Bear tells writer David Shonauer.  You can read the entire profile here, and see two of Bear’s winning photographs here. And you can dive deep into Bear’s work at his personal website.
