I had the chance to do a portrait of my good friend Marcio Scavone, great brazilian photographer.
In doing his portrait I've tried to follow his wise advices. As he once said: "Todo retrato é um autorretrato" (every portrait is an selfportrait).
Muito obrigado mestre!
I've spent a nice afternoon at my friend Marcio Scavone's place, at Alto da Boa Vista, in São Paulo. We've been talking about life and future projects and looking at lots of books and pictures. Talking and learning. Great time.
The picture was shooted by his talented son Lorenzo Scavone.
Luis Martinez Aniesa's blog "Cada día un fotógrafo" is a complete and useful database of photographers from all times and all around the world.
It's been a pleasure to be featured in such an interesting bible.
Nibius has launched the album Arvo Pärt, Piano and chamber music, featuring Lluís Claret, Pedro Piquero and Gerard Claret. The booklet contains a portrait I did to violinist Gerard Claret some time ago.
Beautiful music played by wonderful musicians. Highly recommended.
I've been shooting a portrait of the catalan sculptor Pep Codó at his workshop in La Floresta (Barcelona), surrounded by his fascinating masterpieces.
Pep Codó is one of the most solid and precise bodies of sculptural works produced in this country in recent years. Maria Lluïsa Borràs coincided with this in a text includet in a 1999 catalogue:
- “In the course of time, sculpture has opened itself to a thousand different modes of expression and is exhibited as a simple object or a complete installation. Pep Codó insists on working stone, Ulldecona or Calatorao stone, evoking the most primitive and ancestral essences, perhaps even pre-Columbian art, with a singular will to swim against the current and delve into the remote origins of sculpture in order to be able to project his work with full knowledge of the cause, to increase it and improve it for the future.”
