Leo Adef

Leo Adef is an Argentinian director and photographer, based in Barcelona for several years now.
His work, bold and loud, explores the universe of youngsters people and their emotions in a very intimate and personal way.
“I was repressing all my feelings,” he said. “That’s why I think that all these ideas in my films are fantasies of what I could have lived if I would have been free to live and express my desires”.
Each piece of his work takes us each time, a bit deeper into his own reveries.
Through his lens, Adef explores sexuality and adolescence with an intimate, yet almost voyeuristic look. Breaking open taboos of an earlier suppressed sexuality and of a forced masculinity. Leo has collaborated with different brands and publications such as Mtv, Saint Laurent, i.D, Nowness among others.
