Minimal Poetics

  • Prizes
    Gold in Architecture/Buildings
  • Photographer
    José 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.

Architect and photographer, José Roberto Bassul was born in Rio de Janeiro and lives in Brasilia. Focusing on architecture and the urban landscape, his work has been awarded in several important international competitions and published in specialized magazines such as B&W Magazine (USA), Minimalissimo (England), Luz del Norte (Mexico), BEX Magazine (Argentina) and Photo (France). His photographs were exhibited individually in Brazil and collectively in many cities worldwide and are part of relevant public and private collections.
