New Arrival: Taciturn Heart

2011 / 07 / 03

摄影师Marcelo Gomes以模糊为摄影语言,将摄影主题如一朵彩色的花朵般绽放,盛开。Marcelo的摄影以虚静为美,失焦或是偏移的创作手法,如在无声的交流,沉默寡言的心,摄影师的心。


The photographs of Marcelo Gomes are not classical or rooted in formalism; rather, they disembark from the tropes of photography and enter an extraordinary realm of spontaneity and reconfiguration of frame. Often out of focus and off centered, the subjects of phenomena, humans, and nature are captured with remarkable vibrancy and colorful hues. Taciturn Heart is Gomes’ second book.

摄影师介绍:Marcelo Gomes,生于巴西的年轻摄影师。2003年移居纽约后,任职于Index magazine。工作中认识了自己的摄影导师Mark Borthwick,之后开始自由摄影师的工作,并形成自己独特的摄影风格。Taciturn Heart是独立出版社hassla为Marcelo Gomes出版的第二本书。第一本为Love and Before, Green and After
