Thin, thick, opaque, diaphanous. In their transitoriness, they may be sublime celestial cathedrals full of light and drama, or only humble spots with no density.
They travel in the sky, adrift, made of water and ancient memories, offering themselves to people’s contemplation. “Clouds are there for everyone,” said Alfred Stieglitz, the first photographer to lift up the eyes to the sky and that considered that we can project our thoughts into them.
This essay was carried out over the last ten years, in the tropical light of the skies of the city of Rio de Janeiro.
There are no secrets or preparation. Basically you empty your mind, contemplate the sky and expect the atmosphere to offer something special.
The images are realized with a digital camera, in the format RAW, with post-processing in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, where some changes of contrast or color are applied. Some images can be cropped, seeking a better composition.
It is the normal flow of every photographer, nothing more.
The disclosure of the project is recent and I do not yet have any feedback. Clouds often bring us back to childhood, because it is at this stage of life that we usually pay more attention to them. I believe this will result in a positive experience for those who know about this project.
