Lines of Shadow
José Roberto Bassul
The “Lines of Shadow” series evokes the Constructivism. Geometric, abstract, two-dimensional, its images are formed by the drawing of light in ordinary buildings in Brasilia, the most iconic modernist city.
Architect and photographer, José Roberto Bassul was born in Rio de Janeiro and lives in Brasilia. His photography turns to architecture and cityscape. In the attempt to shift the concrete world of buildings to the senses’ intangible territory, he explores abstraction and geometry. He has received several awards and his works has often been exposed in festivals, galleries and museums. With two two published photobooks, he has works in important private collections, and in the public collections of the National Museum of the Republic in Brasilia and the Art Museum of Rio de Janeiro - MAR.
