Behind the scenes of the city ...



I work outside the urban area, in the University campus of Rio. From there you can see the city "by the back"! The large skyscrapers, the Sugar Loaf ... seen the other side.

It is as if I were behind the scenes ...

Eu trabalho fora da área urbana, no campus universitário do Rio. De lá, vê-se a cidade "pelo avesso"! Os grandes arranha-céus, o Pão de Açúcar ... vistos do outro lado.

É como se eu estivesse nos bastidores...

  1. Fascinating posting. It's always interesting to see the unseen side of cities...often you get that view if you arrive by train.

Why?

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?
