The “Intersecta” show opening, a project that had been conceived more than a year ago, finally had its debut on March 29th in Rio de Janeiro’s Duilio Sartori Gallery.

Designer and gallery/store owner Duilio Sartori was immediately taken by my Hazyvision work when I showed him an edit I was hoping to exhibit in Rio de Janeiro that was shot exclusively in New York City. He thought it would be a great challenge to create a body of Hazyvision work for a show in Rio.

The next day, I started shooting in the streets and on the beach in Copacabana. I shot mostly during the magic hour when the sun goes down until dark for the next 3 weeks, working my way around Rio, over to Ipanema beach, up the Sugar Loaf and the up the windy road to Santa Teresa, around the Lagoon and again and again through Copacabana beach. It was hard to edit the series down to 8 images, but we managed.

In addition to the exhibition I worked together with John Dill, whose design and typography sensibility is simply stunning, to design a coffee table book entitled “Dreaming in Rio” (click here to view the book). I printed the book online and I’m looking for a publisher to print it on a high quality offset press. Any recommendations are welcome!
