You don't take a photograph, you make it
And so the Brazilian architect’s shots do not simply portray buildings, but speak of their atmosphere. They emphasise the colour inherent in images to convey the warmth of places.
These stylistic peculiarities originate in Braescher’s studies in photographic engineering, but also in his work as a director and filmmaker. It is no chance that some of the shots present here could be film sets, laden with emotion, from which the viewer cannot escape.
Nature is always a key factor in his photographic composition, whether it is the sky or the luxuriant Brazilian greenery; this photographer manages to show us a perfectly ordinary image with one eye on reality and the other on the imagination, creating photographs like thoughts. Ricardo Braescher transforms his shots to reveal his own personal vibrant vision of places.
