Camilo Cruz

I am the Community Relations Officer for the Los Angeles Superior Court and at the same time I am a professional artist.  As an administrator within the largest court system in the nation, I witness scenes that testify to the human experiences inside the justice system.  As a visual artist, I explore this dynamic through my lenses. Over the course of my 15-year art career I have been granted permission to explore the intensity of the justice system through photography and installation work.  By exposing the justice system, my place of employment, as a massive ‘theater’ of souls, I strive to capture the imagination of justice leaders and governmental institutions and ask them to consider the relationships between institutions and the public they serve on a more profound basis.
