2018 / People / Life Style
Alberte A Pereira
One of the main axes on which street photography pivots is the observation of people’s behavior. How they interact and how they interrelate, especially in urban spaces.
FRAGMENTS is a sample of small gestures, of people absorbed and decontextualized showing only part of the environment that surrounds them. As well, I attach pieces of urban space without the presence of people.
I propose in this work a photograph of a street separated from the decisive moment, of the extraordinary, of yustapositions or of images in humorous tone. I look for the simple, the essential, the light, showing portrait
