Visionaries | 2002

For this work I brought characters from family stories and legends into the ordinary world of viewers by recollecting and reproducing black and white slides of old photographs from a variety of sources: from the earliest photography studios of Brazilian portrait artists all the way through to amateur images from the start of the twentieth century.

  • series: three installations with 225 viewers each + 1 AP
  • plastic viewers and B/W slides
  • variable dimensions
  • EXHIBITIONS: ‘Achados e perdidos,’ Sesc Pinheiros, São Paulo, Brazil / ‘Vuelvo al Sur,’ L’Éte Photographique, Centre de Photographie de Lectoure, France / ‘Première vue,’ Passage de Retz,Paris, France / ‘Trajetórias 4,’ Fundação Joaquim Nabuco, Recife, Brazil
