Minimal Poetics

  • Prize
    Bronze in Fine Art/Architecture
  • Photographer
    Jose Roberto Bassul

The photographs in this series contrast with the world we live in, which is filled with images saturated with information and colors. They seek out visual refuges in urban landscapes, also polluted by excesses. Minimalist, with few geometric elements expressed in faded colors, "Minimal Poetics" takes architecture as a photographic object to evoke pauses and silences.

Jose Roberto Bassul is an architect and photographer. Born in Rio de Janeiro, he lives in Brasilia, Brazil. His favorite subjects are architecture, urbanism and contemporary aspects of urban life.
Selected and awarded in important competitions, he acts as an authoral photographer. His works have been exhibited in art galleries and are held in private and public collections.
