Founder of LAND.GALLERY and RISC Alumni.

Self-taught 28-year-old photographer born and based in Rio de Janeiro, covering Brazil and available for assignments worldwide.

Since 2017, when he focused his work on documentary photography and photojournalism, Landau is working full time as independent visual storyteller (and sometimes as a writer too), documenting socio-environmental conflicts and its processes of resistance.

Using the photography, he tries to burst the social bubbles that deprive us of different visions. He is a frequent contributor to Reuters, Folha de São Paulo, UOL and Marie Claire, among other clients.

Landau began taking photos when he was 12 years old and started to work as a freelance photographer when he was 16, working for a street fashion blog.

He worked as fashion photographer for 10 years, but after the 2013 protests in Brazil he became stringer for Reuters agency in Rio and realized he should do what he always loved.

"A primeira vez que vi o Lucas com uma câmera na mão, a câmera era maior do que ele. OK, quase maior do que ele. É que o Lucas é grande desde pequeno — em todos os sentidos, mas sobretudo no talento e na garra. Ele sempre soube o que queria fazer, e sempre fez o que queria com raro profissionalismo. Começou a trabalhar como freelancer aos 16 anos; aos 23, já era colaborador da Reuters, uma das mais prestigiosas agências internacionais de notícias. Cobriu de moda a esporte, enfrentou a polícia em manifestações de rua, fotografou anônimos e estrelas, ganhou concursos e firmou-se como um dos melhores fotógrafos da sua geração. Lucas tem paixão, determinação e olho. Está pronto para o que der e vier."
