"Mash your ever lovin thought"
Art Model Lyra
"I've spent quite a while on your portfolio. It draws you in and keeps you looking. Amazing work."
Nettie R Harris, Art Model -
" You my friend have found the essence of human beauty and can't seem to quench your thirst. Your work is saturated with your passion and that is inspirational to say the least. Had a look on your site too, really, really great stuff !"
Photographer Marius Budu
"Move your body" could be his favorite words. I don't know, he didn't tell me. But I'm sure I'm not wrong. When you carefully watch the work of K Leo, you can't miss his endless love for the movement.
Addicted to B/W, using probably natural lights the most he can, all his work is full of life. His talented art models are jumping, bending, extending, modeling in passionate, provocative, emotive, captivating, inspiring, talking... poses.
The prolific K Leo belongs a unique style. Don't ask me how he found it, many tries of course, his inner vision (read carefully his title), his love for life and simple things... I suppose.
Because K Leo doesn't need great settings or a plenty of accessories to shot. He seems to be there just to capture the essence of the human beauty he sees everywhere, in everybody. He's a true observer :" Nothing is more impressive to me than people. It is my subject of choice. I believe that everyone has beauty."K Leo is 32 years old... (Three small points to let you imagine).

Great Artists, body and soul devoted to their Art. Like him.Like all the Contributing Artists of UdA, I'm deeply glad and (very, yes, I confess) proud to welcome such an inspired photographer.
"In all fabled lands"

K Leo by himself :
" I believe in beauty.
I trust Art.
I seek implausible things." K Leo
" We live in a freakishly marvelous world. I am perpetually amazed at the places, faces and precarious situations that surround us all. Mirth and beauty throughout.
I picture almost everything as made up of small repetitive shapes.
In my pictures you will find a mix of clever naked ladies standing, odd shadows glowering, beautiful smiling women posing, classy burlesque dancers prancing, normal topless gals laughing, springy jumping girls kicking, statuesque Art models looking off camera, wonderful breasts and interesting boobs, plain white wall locations."
