ROC MAGAZINE by CARLOS JARAMILLO
Photography Zine by Carlos Jaramillo
Roc was created during the beginning of quarantine, while Carlos was still living in Rockaway Beach, New York, in early 2020. “After dealing with cancer in 2019, I had gone through a major creative slump and had almost no desire or motivation to focus on my work,” he says. to help with both his mental and physical state, Jaramillo began taking therapeutic walks through the sand where he regained his artistic eye. This rejoice of love for photography was back and it shows here. Roc represents a tumultuous time for Carlos and for the world. Its moodier tones nod to a time of darkness, yet at the same time evoke a sense of hope and change. “I hope people are excited to see something new from me,” Carlos concludes, “it’s been a few years since I’ve released new work without explanation.”
