Sara Lando Demo Stage in Photokina 2018
I live and work in Bassano del Grappa, and I divide my time between commercial portraits, fine art photography and teaching.
A large part of my personal work explores Identity, the boundaries between what is real and what is imagined, and the way in which memory deteriorates and reshapes itself with the passage of time.
I am interested in moments when the traditional relationship between what we are and the world around us is unraveled and replaced by a new definition of what we are or could be.
My work consists in the use of mixed techniques and includes photography, illustration, collage and three-dimensional and material elements. The techniques I use are driven by a playful curiosity and direct interaction with photography as an object rather than digital techniques.
I am fascinated by the fragmentation and degradation of the image and the concept of creation as a consequence of an object’s physical destruction. As a member of the Board of the Italian Association of Professional Photographers Tau Visual I am interested in promoting accessibility and diversity in the field of photography, with special attention to informed consent and the responsibility that the photographer holds towards their subjects.
