Sound Waves SOUND WAVES - The images for this project were made using multiple exposure, intentional camera movement (ICM) and blur techniques, often using low shutter speeds. These techniques, mixed with the lighting of the concert halls, help me to get more than just a record of the musicians on stage (which I also like, BTW). My intent is to visually show the sound movements, the mood and the vibe of the music being performed. Although there is some degree of control and a clear intention behind each photo, the results are always unpredictable thanks to the ever-changing stage lighting and the musicians' movements on stage.
Wall of Death WALL OF DEATH - This project aims to document the crowd interaction at extreme music live shows. People who go to these concerts want to let their inner energy flows freely in a very cathartic experience, leaving the bystanders with the impression of a big riot. The violence, though, is only apparent and nobody (usually) gets hurt. The low shutter speed of the camera helps to enhance the energy of the movements.
Que Beleza! QUE BELEZA! - The doors of hairdressing and beauty salons in São Paulo are often decorated with graffiti. These art pieces are made by local artists and sometimes offer an interesting contrast to the very activity of those places... the pursuit of beauty.
Quebrada QUEBRADA - Built using found objects and cheap materials, the houses of São Paulo poorest and marginalized population many times shows interesting shapes and color juxtapositions. In Portuguese, quebrada is a slang for a place far from downtown, often populated by its less favored inhabitants. It also stands for broken.
