Jeremy Damato’s photographic journey begins in 2008. A self-taught documentarian, Damato was initially drawn to street photography. In 2011 he processed and archived numerous rolls of American street photographer Vivian Maier's film, which resulted in an exhibition at the Cleve Carney Art Gallery in Glen Ellyn, IL. This experience contributed to his passion for analog and later his success in the world of documentary photography.
In 2012 Damato was the unit still photographer for Wishing Well Pictures boxing drama "The Challenger" featuring Michael Clarke Duncan (Oscar nominee for "The Green Mile") in his final performance. Damato’s work has been exhibited in the celebrated Chelsea art district in New York City, and has appeared in Black and White magazine as well as Photo Life, Canada’s leading source for photography. Damato is based in Chicago, IL.
