Predominantly encouraging others to share their stories through photography, Landro, hypocritically enjoys maintaining a low profile, rarely revealing herself through pictures. Seduced by the gross and influenced by her Italian culture and life-long experience with catholic guilt, Landro uses photography as a way to connect. A way to understand and find meaning.
"Finally by the Sea, where God is everywhere, I gradually calmed"
Said Patti Smith.
A personal feeling. Exposed. Too fat. Revealed. So skinny. Have you lost weight? Something one usually keeps to themselves. Where are you from? But wears it on their skin. No, where are you really from?
A self-conscious exposés. A shared feeling.
Now, I have space
A ten-metre tide is always something you want to take a picture of. As she breathes in and out you know she is alive. She is here. She gradually calms.
Every morning I go to the beach and send videos of the tide to my friends.
