« Body Prologue Epilogue » awarded at the Brazilian International Photography Festival « Paraty em Foco 2016 », is a work of body postures. The images on the body, in the line of contemporary photography, serves as a screen to the reality of the body, both enclosed upon itself and open to the look of others. It does not look at us, it hits our eyes with its solidity, and density.

It is the subject, without any trick in the visible space that come to mark the limit. The body poses a mystery, and the imagery in natural light provides shapes with compactness. The subjects are always everyday people’s life, whose body would still need to be found, in the midst of its appearance and disappearance.
