Pedro Laderia is a 21-year-old photographer from Sao Paulo, Brazil with a penchant for capturing complex, innocent moments that blend sensuality, naiveté, and organic beauty with relative ease.
For this series of pictures, Pedro Laderia's 'L'Innocence,' the young photographer teams up with model Bruna Giglio and explores the open space of the Brazilian mountains. For such a young photographer, Pedro Laderia seems experienced at capturing youthful bliss and sex appeal.
Giglio looks alternatively aloof, lonely, and gorgeous in the 'L'Innocence' shots. Despite all of these different emotions and facial expressions, she manages to never directly connect with the camera in a way that is overwhelmingly positive.
My favorite photograph in Pedro Laderia's 'L'Innocence features Giglio staring off into the distance, her right hand on a rock and her life hand on her leg. The shot captures the mystery, wonder, and unforced beauty that powers Pedro Laderia and this memorable editorial.
