Horizons by Bruno Cals

Horizons, a series of architectural photographs by Brazilian photographer Bruno Cals, will be on view at 1500 Gallery. The six photographs in the exhibition are part of a personal artistic project that Cals, a well-known fashion/advertising photographer based in São Paulo, Brazil, has been working on since 2008.

The photographs in the Horizons series are suggestive of something beyond the record presented. The images of the buildings in São Paulo, Tokyo and Buenos Aires explore the limits of two-dimensionality, and articulate a radically different perspective on a commonplace visual scenario. In expressing this fresh point of view, Bruno Cals has invoked contrasting themes of possibility versus impossibility, presence versus emptiness, and search versus satisfaction.


I was reading a book weeks ago, it was on, the theme " Horizons" its art direction is somewhat different from the one featuring here, rather, the concept is similar. Here is a paragraph of what it is;

The image of horizon as an empty vessel of epic proportions. The image of the horizon represent nothing in particular; on the contrary, it can accommodate everything, This is because it gives us an obstructed view of everything in heaven and earth once.. ..
