Cammie Toloui was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. She holds a degree in photojournalism from San Francisco State University, where she also taught photography.


Her work as a documentary photographer has taken her to Russia, inside ambulances, strip clubs and other public/private worlds. She delights in exploring and exposing taboos, finding humor in unexpected juxtapositions and discovering a subject’s unguarded truth.


Her work has shown in London’s Tate Modern, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, New York’s New Museum of Contemporary Art, San Francisco Camerawork Gallery and Wight Art Gallery in Los Angeles, among other places.


She was awarded the New York Times Award for Excellence in Photojournalism, The Greg Robinson Memorial Photojournalism Scholarship and was honored to attend the Eddie Adams Workshop.

In 2021 her book of the Lusty Lady series $5 for 3 Minutes was published by Void


Cammie spent many years raising a child, working as a photo editor, photographer-for-hire and massage therapist. She continues to document her life and uncover taboos through her photography,  her jewelry and her band the Yeastie Girlz.
