GUILHERME BERGAMINI

Brazil

Amazon River

The photographs presented are part of my visual diary for the natural beauties of my country, Brazil. They are photographs that dialogue in a linear narrative with varied themes. Photographs of leaves in backlight, valuing the beleza of the sunlight. The Amazon River with its waters and the influence of the tide allow a multitude of tonalities, this is the light of the Amazon. Waterfalls full of clear water form a paradisical scenery. They are natural beauties that suffer from the action of man. We possess many natural beauties that must be preserved and care for the new generations to have the opportunity to experience nature in its fullest form.

Macapá is the unique Brazilian state capital crossed by the Amazon River. After the high tide, old wooden posts become the goal of a soccer field popularly known as “foot-mud”. The water level goes down, the game begins. It rises, the game is over. The time of the watch has no sense. The rain and the tide offer us multiple shades. Between 3pm and 7pm the tide comes down and colors vibrate, an unique phenomenon in Amapá.
