Expectant spectators

Orchestra of the Teatro Tom Jobim (in honor of the conductor and composer Antonio Carlos Jobim), part of the Botanic Garden.

Platéia do Teatro Tom Jobim (em homenagem ao maestro e compositor brasileiro Tom Jobim), parte do complexo do Jardim Botânico.

Below, another view of the theater. The Botanical Garden was very special to Tom Jobim, who was there to write, meditate or relax.

Abaixo, outra visão do teatro. O Jardim Botânico era muito especial para Tom Jobim, que ia lá para compor, meditar ou relaxar.


  1. To me the chairs looked like lots of faces/lots of eyes.....
    Are they comfortable to sit in?

  2. This is the idea, Gunn! We think exactly about dozens of expectant eyes! And yes, they are very comfortable, despite no padding...

  3. Mais il n'y a personne , qui attendait-on ?


Thanks for your comment!

What about the weather?

Who, where or when?


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?
