DUALIDADE is about visualizing the two extremes that live within each other’s proximity in the Rio landscape. ☯️ the photograph on the left shows the largest favela in Brazil laying within a stone’s throw of luxurious villas & an expensive private school. 🌃 the work on the right shows the depth in Rio de Janeiro’s cityscape as well as the gradual devision between it’s inhabitants.
Favelas tend to be located on mountainous terrain. Therefore you can see commercial buildings in front of small houses and eventually into favelas when you look up. 👩🎨 I have been named a “postcard” photographer, because of the esthetics in my work. I do believe that a piece of work can be nice to look at while at the same time communicate a more profound message.
For those wanting to experience my work in real life, it’s still up at Cuperus until the end of December. If you want a guided tour, just send me a dm 😉
