"I grew up in a family of artists, surrounded by art, but it wasn't until I looked through the lens of a camera, that I discovered my own medium, and a way of seeing the world. I love capturing, in one shot, the essence of a person, scene or landscape. We each see the world in a unique way, and my photographs present my particular vision,” Amadeo Lasansky says.
That vision has been honed by traveling to over 35 countries and documenting what he saw and experienced. The result is a body of work that spans the world and yet also brings the world into focus, so to speak.
In his own words Amadeo says “I grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota. My dad is a printmaker, and my mom is a writer. I like to think that I am continuing their tradition by taking these photographs. I have traveled and photographed throughout the world and have lived in NYC, Cuernavaca and Beijing. I currently live with my wife in Nashville, Tennessee."
