The moment Leandro commits to a photographic session, he dives into music and art history books looking for true inspiration to present itself and come to life, along with his creative imagination. With a basic blueprint of the concept on hand, he elaborates with sketches creating a story line to compose the perfect frame. Leandro infuses his creative concepts with hidden meaning not to be seen at first glance, but rather to be studied, looking at body language and iconic symbolism. “Conceptual Photography is more than an enigma to me; it’s when I’m able to connect with the general audience with beautiful visual aesthetics, and for me to connect with the highest art critics and future generations, unfolding layers of labor, passion, and care that begin at first conception.”
Art, beauty, emotion, and timeless elements are all strong factors in Leandro’s body of work. This allows the viewer to step into his mind full of wonders and imagination. Leandro has been showcased in National Art Museums, Private Galleries, and his work has been published in numerous fashion magazines. His approach to photography is simply timeless, with romantic flair, always emphasizing the light of things.
As a Director of Photography for the Fashion Industry Association, many come to him to upgrade, or approach their ad campaigns in new ways. Due to his perspective and ability to blend Art with Commercial in a seamless way, colliding the best of both worlds into one frame, his perspective is clear, and has been welcomed by many top executives in the fashion, fitness, and art worlds.
“I hope one day, many years in the future, my work will be displayed in collections of international museums, and for future generations to see my perspective and how much beauty this world has to offer. After all, life is best lived, with true essence of joy in one’s heart.” Life without perspective, Leandro said, is no life at all. Perhaps that is why he is allowing us to view his life beyond his own perspective, and is allowing his journey to blend in with ours as well. Read Less
