RISC Alumni.

Self-taught 29-year-old photographer born and based in Rio de Janeiro, covering socio-environmental conflicts in Brazil and their resistance processes.

Naturally curious, he believes he was born a photographer. Since he was 12 years old he tries to make sense of the world around him through a camera, always looking from the perspective of hope and dignity, despite the chaotic contexts.

Landau worked as fashion photographer for 11 years and since 2017 he is totally focused on photojournalism and documentary photography, working as an independent visual storyteller (and sometimes as writer as well).

He became a Reuters stringer photographer in 2013, during the street protests in Brazil, and he is a contributor to National Geographic Brasil, Folha de São Paulo, UOL, CLAUDIA, among other clients.

WHERE TO BUY - Artshot Gallery


"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."
