"Souvenirs de Rio" - Ah! And a tribute!



To choose: wood or acrylic?

A escolher: madeira ou acrílico?





Every tourist who comes to Rio not return without taking one of these miniatures of Christ the Redeemer, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World!

Todo turista que vem ao Rio não volta sem levar uma destas miniaturas do Cristo Redentor, uma das Sete Maravilhas do Mundo Moderno!

In honor of 170 years of photography and also to m_m friend reminded us of this fact, there is the smallest camera we've ever seen! And what takes real photos!

Em homenagem aos 170 anos da fotografia e também do amigo m_m que nos lembrou deste fato, aí vai a menor câmera que nós conhecemos! E que tira fotos reais!

  1. The bigger question remains, "Where were they made?"

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?
