Land in sight!














This rock is called Pedra da Gávea (Rock of the Topsail). The navigators who had arrived at Rio find it similar to the topsail of a ship.


This is the sight of our apartment. We capture some moments of the day, with the different colors and luminosity. These are only some of the sets of ten that we photograph…


Esta é a Pedra da Gávea. Os navegadores que chegaram ao Rio achavam-na parecida com a gávea de um navio.

Esta é a vista do nosso apartamento. Capturamos vários momentos do dia, com as diferentes cores e luminosidade. Estas são apenas algumas das dezenas que fotografamos...

Why?

Le véritable voyage de découverte ne consiste pas à chercher de nouveax paysages, mais à avoir de nouveaux yeux. (Marcel Proust)

What time is it in Rio?

What about the weather?

Who, where or when?

What?

We walk by the streets of our city and very often we don’t realize its images, which are there and which suddenly are not any more.

To photograph and glance is to guard images, impressions. It is also to re-discover the space where we live, our imaginary and scenario of our lives.

Our glance is not enough. It is necessary that others look what we see.

Andamos pelas ruas de nossa cidade e muitas vezes não percebemos suas imagens, que estão ali e que de repente não estão mais.

Fotografar e olhar é guardar imagens, impressões. É também redescobrir o espaço em que vivemos, nosso imaginário e cenário de nossas vidas.

Nosso olhar não basta. É preciso que outros olhem o que vemos.


Who see me?

To whom?
