Former Staff and Intern

Leandro is a photographer and documentarian.

In 2008 his proposal for a documentary on immigration was selected by a Brazilian culture fund for production. Leandro directed and edited the resulting project, New Immigrants which documents the lives of recent arrivals to his home town, Caxias do Sul, in southern Brazil.

The following year, he shot and edited a documentary about local rock bands from the 1980's and '90s.

In the United States, Leandro served as an intern at Magnum In Motion, where he produced a series of multimedia trailers about photographer Larry Towell's work in Afghanistan.

Leandro also produced Who Are You?, a five-part multimedia project about everyday New Yorkers, each beginning with the subject's subway commute.

Prior to his internship at MediaStorm, he was a multimedia producer at the 2010 Eddie Adams Workshop.

Leandro's photography has appeared in newspapers and magazines in Brazil, Portugal and New York. He has a degree in social communication with an emphasis in advertising from the University of Caxias do Sul, Brazil.
