The exhibition includes images by São Paulo-based photographer Luciana Gama (born 1969), whose work addresses cultural appropriation and culture transfer in contemporary Brazil.
Eustáquio Neves (born 1955) initially works with the formal techniques of portrait photography, only to use complex post-processing methods to create entirely new visual and intellectual levels in his photographs.
Curator Marcelo Cardoso Gama contrasts the work of these two artists with a historic series by Alberto Henschel (1827-1882). His work reflects the breadth of historic Brazilian society from lavish Court life and the self-representation of the bourgeoisie, to depictions Afro-Brazilian slaves.
