Leonard Corfu is a 25 year old photographer, who initially started as a film enthusiast.
The desire to expand his artistic view determined Leo to leave Romania, his native country, and undertake a bachelors degree in Media Production at Coventry University. During this time Leo initially saw writing then cinematography as a primary way of expression.
In 2020, for dissertation project, he wrote and directed “A sight for sore eyes”, a short form drama which has been awarded “Best Local Film” by Birmingham Film Festival, as well as “Official Selection” for LiftOff and Screentest Film Festivals.
His interest in photography started during his late period of university, by landing small jobs at different events and helping various personalities comunicate their message through stills.
After graduation, he continued to focus on photography as he started to work for the internationally acclaimed artist and fashion designer Aitor Throup at his studio in Burnley, Lancashire. Under his guidance, Leo succeeded in catching Aitor’s creative vision, while forming and adding his personal style, thus producing work which has been published on Vogue, WWD, Forbes and Hypebeast.
In 2022 he moved to London to work on a personal photography project while fortifying his ever-changing creative vision. Leo Corfu describes himself as a curator as much as an observer, his favourite themes being the human condition, conflict and freedom.
