The opportunity of seeing something that has both a strangeness and a hidden beauty has always fascinated me. This is an innate energy of the subject to which I respond, an internal voice that asks me to stop and take a picture. In the beginning, I don’t always now what is luring me. It is as if something hidden behind a curtain reveals itself only when I click the shutter. This innate energy is always talking to me, sometimes I listen to it, sometimes I don’t; but I like to wander searching to experience it .
My mission is to show the beauty of the things that are not apparent, to reveal the instants when the universal is found in the particular.

Pardo Iannini was born in 1977 in Bogota Colombia. His first contact with photography came with an Everflash camera gifted by his father when he was 11 years old.
A drummer since 14 year old, he studied engineering and later moved to the UK and Italy, finally arriving to the Netherlands, where he received an MBA. After years of frustration, he finally studied photography at Fotoacademie in Amsterdam. He has been exploring meditation, and different paths of spirituality.
In 2019 his graduating work was based on the experience of ayahuasca and his contact with the spirits world. This crossing point of the invisible, spirituality and photography has since then been his focus. He has been nominated as one of the GUP New 2020 photographers and the Top 100 european emerging talents by Fresh Eyes Magazine
