Image for this month by Vincent Leandro, “Navigating Adolescence”, photograph (detail).
In July of this year, Vincent Leandro took a journey to Washington, DC. It was his first visit there, and as it turned out, his work transitioned into something new. Vincent’s work was formerly focused on inanimate objects, and relationships between shapes, light and shadow. On this trip he turned the camera in a new direction, capturing images of people in motion, people like himself who were moving through unfamiliar territory. This work is about movement, transition, and transformation. The camera is both witness to and chronicler of these processes. It captures one single instant, in the continuous flow of moments, during which an infinite number of activities occur. It is all happening right before our eyes. And it is so easily missed, so often unnoticed, so soon lost. The camera, thankfully, sees in ways we simply cannot.
