"Researching the self—is a project that can take a lifetime. Through self-portraiture, Rita Lino created a comprehensive visual diary, a merge of intuitive, artistic, and staged photography. The exploration of the self, of the body, the study of sexuality and femininity reveals some deep-rooted truths. The perception changes from the well-accepted vision of oneself to expose an additional layer of the personality with undertones from the subconscious." - Wul Magazine
Born in Portugal, 1986. Rita Lino began tracing her own path in Photography by exploring freely and without any kind of preconception the construction of the still image. Focusing mainly on her personal work, the photographer as been developing and materializing it under series of photos, visual exercises that explore a “natural obsession” with the self and the persona, a continuous “work-in-progress” that uses the body as primer matter to be re-created and beautifully exorcised.
