Photography came to me very naturally. Basically I love to look around, I try to live close to real people and real things, and photography always reminds me about that. I would love to be labelled as the artist that shares experiences, having the chance to talk about it and always meeting good people.
I’m living in between Berlin and Torino.
You can find me at either lou-echo.tumblr.com/ or cargocollective.com/Paola-Lesina.
My style is Cold, true with some groove.
I wouldn’t say it has changed, I’d rather say that you can see the rise in confidence in myself and work. Reason why the social aspect is something increasingly present in my projects.. I started with analogic camera and I’m still in love with that, it helps me giving these moments more though, more value.
I’m running a project in the country side of Italy regarding "the sense of not belonging”, it is really metaphoric and figurative.
Since I was a child I used to play around cutting and mixing images or clothes. I actually still do it as side project under the name of Lou Echo, where I work with the technique of collage. It is really exciting and rousing, you get to discover something new about yourself every time.
Over the last few years, I spent a lot of time walking by myself and wondering about perception and beauty. I started focusing on what was around me, and I found everything I needed. My first project was about the shapes and the colours of the leaves, the sweetness and the pleasure of the nature still wins over us.
This might sound a bit weird but I'd love being able to heal people. Being healthy and well is a treasure.
