About Felipe Russo
Born in São Paulo, Brazil.
I am a photographer with a background in Biology and Landscape Ecology.
Photography is a relational practice, a space for learning and questioning. The camera is the mediating instrument of a physical, sensorial and intellectual contact with the world around me. Photography helps me to be present and more connected to the world and myself, I am grateful for it.
Landscape Ecology seeks to identify the linkage of point phenomena, or small stories, with the broader perspective of the territory. I wish to better perceive this links, the links between seemingly unimportant structures and their deep connection to larger systems and our daily experience. Today I look at the city and its spaces because this is where I live and where my personal story is built. I still observe it, as I did when I walked in the woods.
