Leandro Feal


From the last century to the present emerged again a “dirty” Realism. It is in that stream that Leandro Feal has begun: a considerable photographic cabinet using mainly the analogical picture. Leandro is sensitive to a more personal, intimate, simple reality, as a temporary record of common events; but avoiding the clichés. He creates images from a reality without makeup, to make of the paparazzi something familiar and respectful; related with the alternative thing, with the outlawed. His work becomes a “thermometer” of the spirit of a time; examining in a social segment that is between the misleading and the hope of life. (1985, Havana, Cuba. Lives and works between Barcelona and Havana)
