Filardo's work exists as a culmination of a decade long photographic practice mixed with a developing poetry practice. Currently, themes in Filardo's work revolve around theology, genealogy, mixed race diaspora, punk themes, drug use, and the cosmos. Through various interests in cinema, music, and spiritual practices Filardo mixes a wide range of themes into potent photographic sequences, books, and exhibitions. Filardo is currently working on a body of work revolving around angels, aliens, the cosmos, and childhood nostalgia. How those themes touch upon what it means to be a mixed race non binary person in today's world.
