Lou Russo is a portrait and conceptual photographer whose background in tv production lends a strong sense of story, character and even lightheartedness to his work. His personal work has been shown at The New Britain Museum of American Art and he is the host of The Latent Lens podcast where he speaks with fellow photographers about the personal work they pursue. The podcast is scheduled to debut this summer. Additional personal work can be viewed on Instagram under the username opening_scenes.
