Amy Leibrand is an environmental researcher for a global research and development non-profit organization where she studies climate-change impacts and renewable-energy technologies but also she is an artist. In her artworks two elements stand out: her big passion and her enviable sperimentation. Her projects are a fantastic result created by mixing creativity and surrealism with a nice work of app editing.
She started as an apprentice doing portraits for her personal profile of Facebook and she has done so good with her smartphone and post production to become a recognized artist in the mobile photography sector.
She describes herself as an images manipulator rather than a photographer. Sometimes she just points and clicks with spontaneity and other times she sets a tripod system to start her conceptual works. Amy is a talented artist and works very well in post production, but what I like very much about her images is how she represents things. Her images talk, her works can be interpreted by the viewers and her photos have multiple ways to be discovered by people.
Sharing this video, through this channel, means for me looking at sperimentation and see beyond things. The images she makes are very creative and the message I can take out of her interview is to keep creating and revealing things beyond reality.
Hope you enjoy the video interview as I did!
