Caio Reisewitz

Caio Reisewitz (born 1967 in São Paulo, where he lives and works) is one of Brazil's leading contemporary photographer. The register of a high-speed changing nature is one of the subjects that articulates Reisewitz's photographic work. In this sense, his images are placed in a tradition in which photographic means are witnesses and capture ephemeral realities. The activity of man on the planet, and in certain areas in particular, radically modifies the appearance of the landscape. His photographs, that are mostly large format, are characterized by their frontality and by a spectacular clarity that shows an exuberant nature and a unreal utopian beauty. On one occasion he himself commented: “sometimes these images don't seem real, utopian they are, but they are true, it is the pure reality.”
