The Brazilian launch of My World Book 2 in conjunction with the author’s photo exhibition opening was a success over the June 19th weekend with over 30 people participating.
The launch video for My World Book 2 was presented continually throughout the event.
The author is also a photographer. This, his third art opening in the remote colonial village of Tiradentes, MG, showcased 27 black & white images taken over several decades during hikes in the adjoining Serra de São José range.
At 10km long and reaching altitudes of 1440m, it is one of Brazil’s most diverse biomes. To the best of the author’s knowledge, this is the first exhibition dedicated to the serra from close up and on top.
The 11×14 prints are manually produced, with a Nikon FM camera, Tri-X film, and Ilford Multigrade RC paper, without any digital manipulation whatsoever.
The exhibition also helped to re-open the colonial town’s cultural calendar, the first solo exhibition in 2+ years. [please hover over images for captions]
