Born in Portugal, 1986. Rita Lino began tracing her own path in Photography by exploring freely and without any kind of pre-conception 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. Lino’s describes her Photography as animal, instinctive, intimate, narcissistic, filled with emotions and sensations, a diary with a thousand possible interpretations, a spiritual place, a self sustained rehab outlined by the brutal transparency of her own life. She´ve been developing your own personal series and projects and also collaborating with several international initiatives, artist residences, exhibitions among others, as so editorial initiatives by contributing with her personal series or by creating exclusive photo series for international magazines.
