STATEMENT Life is cyclic. It is the same thing with my photography : sometimes I shoot in colour, sometimes in black and white, square, digital or film. I have been using my iphone to take pictures and process them for years now. I never say to myself that a particular format will be the most appropriate for a particular situation. It is a risk I take at the beginning of a photographic session. I don’t compute, I am not looking for the best composition ever. I open my eyes, see something that attracts me, I select angle, I push the button and it’s over. Whatever happens afterwards is pretty random. Sometimes the image acquires meaning, a story is captured. Sometimes it remains silent and is ruhtlessly deleted.
BIOGRAPHY Amo is self-taught. Even though her pictures might suggest she is short-sighted, chaotic and family-driven, they simply display the serious disorder of scattered reminiscences she tries to keep before memory escapes her. Attracted by technological novelty and its spin-off, Amo has peppily tested the hundreds of apps her iPhone offers, with a first mover approach. Seduced by the immediacy of images, she shoots her photos by game and with a genuine desire to contribute to the emergence of a new artistic form. La Comtesse, France, june 2012
