The photos of 31 Brazilian artists in this book reflect the facets of this multifarious country, its traditions and culture. Their different artistic positions illustrate for the first time in Europe the development of the Brazilian photography since the mid-1940s.
Brazil seen through its photography: in this book the photographic works of 31 Brazilian artists reflect the many facets of this diverse country, its traditions and its culture. The photographers' varied artistic positions illustrate for the first time in the European arena the development of Brazilian photography since the mid-1940s: the early experimental works by Geraldo de Barros, the committed photographic reportage by Sebastião Salgado, Brazil's internationally best-known photographer, the ethnological documentations by Pierre Verger, Araquém Alcântaras' color-saturated landscapes or the 'new photography' of the young photo scene. All this together creates an intense picture of Latin America's biggest country. Rubens Fernandes Jr., director of the Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado São Paolo, and a leading specialist on Brazilian photography, provides an expert introduction to the tendencies of the past 50 years. Additional background information is furnished by a chronology of the most important developments in the field of photography from 1946 to 1998, biographies of the photographers and an extensive bibliography. The artists:: Nair Benedicto, Luiz Braga, Valdir Cruz, Thomaz Farkas, Elza Lima, Rubens Mano, Cristiano Mascaro, Celso Oliveira, Kenji Ota, Antonio Saggese, Sebastião Salgado, Tiago Santana, Pedro Vasquez, Carlos Fadon Vicente, Ed Viggiani, a.o.
