Inspiration and a tribute: To the landscapes of Bill Brandt.

My little library of photography books is (much) richer since yesterday: the book Bill Brandt: Shadow & Light has arrived, published in conjunction with the exhibition “Bill Brandt: Shadow & Light” at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (March 06-August 12, 2013) and organized by Sarah Hermanson Meister, curator of the Department of Photography at this institution.

This book shows how important is this great photographer born in Germany and who lived much of his life in England who worked with equal mastery in the genres of documentary photography, portraits, nudes and breathtaking landscape photography.

My homage and tribute to this phenomenal photographer, one of the greatest of the 20th century, is made with this polyptych below where I show 4 landscapes from Serra da Canastra, Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Photo book: ENTRE OLHARES. Imagem e palavra

It just came out: a book of photographs by the FRAGMA group, multi-authors, including me, with just one photo, but just as happy for the feat, curated by Jorge Fernando Vieira (Maceió, AL-Brasil).

Congratulations to Jorginho for the hard work and to all the authors (we are 23)!

And…, long live photography! Ever! It exists because life is not enough.

This is my photo of the book (sse below) and that had been awarded one day earlier this year by the curatorship of Grupo Fragma and hence its selection for the book. The title of the photo is ‘solitude’….hope you like it….
