Lindo’s work focuses around feeling of nostalgia and the process of catharsis. He is interested in everyday life as his nostalgia is a sentimental of loss and displacement, he draws his inspiration from all that surrounds him. His process involves capturing moments that he feels nostalgic to. He is also interested in how the past weaves itself into the present and how sometimes this creates a psychological barrier. With his work he hopes to inspire and open unspoken dialogues.
His process involves taking photographs from the township where he lives and also taking old photographs from friends and family. He reinterprets these “moments” through charcoal drawing and printmaking mediums. He uses offsetting to communicate how memory can be subjective, out of focus and fragmented. His technique of bold contrast between dark and light, investigates how other unspoken meaning can be embedded in our minds and memory forever.
