Anne-Sophie Landou
Photographer

I am Anne-Sophie Landou, a French photographer based in Marseille. I have Corsican roots I am very attached to and I was born in Toulon, by the sea.

Photography has been a lifestyle since I was a teen; the camera is always with me and I just shoot what I see with my own artistic sensitivity.

As far as I can remember, I have always been fascinated with images (children books, movies, painting…). I grabbed a camera ‘for fun’ when I was 14, playing with disposables and my parents’ first digital camera. In my head I wasn’t even ‘taking pictures’, but I was already excited by the process.

Photography became serious to me in high school when I got sick. For a year, I took intimate pictures of my closest friends, pictures of my family, of my dog, a lot of self portraits. I deal with anxiety issues; photography became my favorite way to break this mental pattern I am often locked in.

I have a law degree but I never could work in that field, always caught up by my obsession with images and my vital desire to create. The camera never left me anyway. It has been more than two years since I graduated and I can say now that my life is completely focused on photography.

I am a detective with a good partner in crime, the shutter! That is how I see it: photography is part of who I am, a play tool to convey my vision of the world in a raw, poetic, intuitive, feminine way. It can be inside or outside, digital, analog, black and white or color. Lately I am only using color, shooting mostly analog and using flash. I guess because it is how I see and feel things, in a very gritty, explosive, intense way.

It happens in the now, that is why beyond my inspiration by great artists like William Eggleston or Picasso, my passion for curating and discovering emergent artists and my hyper sensitivity, life is what makes me a photographer.

  • Atiéna R. Kilfa: Special Effect
    May 4 – Sep 8, 2024
    Den Frie
    Copenhagen, Denmark
    With Special Effect, Atiéna R. Kilfa presents a new body of works consisting of a short film and two large scale pencil drawings. In continuation of Kilfa’s investigation and restructuring of cinematic archetypes, Special Effect homes in on the nondescript figure of a man sitting at a desk. Shot in black and white, the film eerily evokes a timelessness of the figure by bringing it in resonance with pictorial genres reminiscent of various eras from German Expressionist cinema to the golden age of Hollywood film noir, fast forward to its 4K quality of today.

  • A Model
    Feb 9 – Sep 8, 2024
    Mudam
    Luxembourg
    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture. While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)
  • Georg Kussmann: FRG
    Publication
    MACK
    International
    The German dramatist Heiner Müller observed that German history lies as if smothered by a rheumatism blanket: beneath there is warmth and stagnation, just enough to give the impression all is well, while the peripheries are freezing. Georg Kussmann’s photographs in FRG were created under this metaphoric blanket. Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)
