Photography is the resurrection of the past and the record of a moment that no longer exists. Ruins are not just remains or leftovers. They are stories and memories, written within walls, textures, and surreal landscapes.
The landscape in these expositions are similar to a war field, and the shrouds of debris become reborn shadows. This particular photography assumes the incisive taxidermy of aesthetic cuts that define the intention and interest of its author. The cut and the detail. The disturbance where the surreal is reborn and screams, yes.
Born in 1949 on Terceira Island, Azores, Orlando Azevedo dedicates himself professionally to documentary photography throughout his travels and expeditions across Portugal, Brazil and beyond.
