Camargo, who was originally born in Anaheim, plans to self-publish a book about his hometown and the growing Latino population that surrounds the city that houses Disneyland.
You can find him around Chicago, especially the West and Southside neighborhoods, capturing images, teaching art to youth or showing off his killer dance moves at events like CumbiaSazo.
