Release of the photobook “RURAIS” and photo exhibition: An invitation

I invite my dear friends to the (in person) release of my book of photographs “RURAIS” (rural workers) which will take place on October 23, 2021 at the Casa de Cultura Odisséia, Al. Ministro Rocha Azevedo, 463 São Paulo (SP-Brazil) from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Photographs of the author will be exhibited from 10/23 to 11/17/2021 which, as the book, will be for sale at the site.

Rurais (Editora Origin) by Antonio Mozeto: “Very little is known or publicized about our vernacular culture for various reasons, but mainly due to its wide spectrum in front of an extensive and heterogeneous country, populated by different origins. We also inhabit a land full of stereotypes when dealing with our imagery, but paradoxically of immense richness when we delve into its details, as is the case with this book by Antonio Mozeto. As a good photographer and documentary photographer, he continues in search of what is auspicious, subverting with his great talent the current practice”. (Juan Esteves, curator)

The building where the Casa de Cultura Odisséia is housed is a very spacious and airy environment and, on that occasion, all procedures for social distancing and others to contain the spread of contamination by convid-19 will be strictly observed.

The event in question will mark the joint release of my book to the books by photographer Daniella Rosário (Ribeirão Preto, SP-Brazil) called “Orações de Conceição” and by photographer Ed Beltrão (São Paulo, SP-Brazil) called “Temperança”.

It is with great satisfaction that I make this invitation, and it is a great joy for me to receive you on the launch day as well as having your visit during the period of the exhibition in question.

I kindly ask you to publicize the event among your peers, for which I am very grateful.

I'm an amateur photographer based in the city of São Carlos, São Paulo state, SE Brazil. I used to make photographs since I was about 15-17 years old. My first camera was a Olympus Trip, an analogue camera. Many years after that I switched to several digital cameras. Presently I own a Nikon D500 with a small set of lenses and a Fujifilm X100T 23mm. A few years after my retirement as an university professor, after teaching Environmental Chemistry at the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) for 45 years, I decided to invest money and time dedicating myself more seriously to photography. I´ve taken on-line courses as well as I´ve participated to various photography festival across Brazil. By far, my biggest interest is street photography. And in it, I'm interested in portraits, everyday street scenes and architecture.
