Marco Lando

Marco Lando’s photographic work is influenced by his New York theatre background. Combining existential plot lines, dramatic lighting, and surrealist stage design, the otherworldly mise-en-scenes he creates operate on a visceral, symbolic level. Always shot in black-and-white, and manipulated digitally, his imagery explores the human psyche, eschewing the rational and moral world in favor of the unconscious and instinctual. The absence of color lends a forensic quality to the uncanny nature of subject matter, and avoids pushing it into the realm of the sensational.


In “Specter of Belief”, a new project for the City of Ravenna that was exhibited in 2020 at the NiArt Gallery in Ravenna, Lando has adapted the ancient Byzantine tradition of mosaic to his conceptual ends, utilizing its relationship of fragment to whole in photo-based compositions.


He has most recently shown his work at the Site: Brooklyn Art Gallery and at the Viridian Artists Inc. both in New York City. He was a finalist at the 2016 WAC in Wells, UK.
