CRAVO NETO, Mario
Mario Cravo Neto is one of the most important Brazilian photographers, passed away in 2009, and whose works are represented exclusively for Europe. The gallery cooperates with the institute Mario Cravo Neto in Brazil.
His most famous works of the '80s are basically the elegant black and white series where images led to a suspended and muffled atmosphere, where bodies and objects acquired an intimate and mystic appearance. Mario Cravo Neto "stages" his portraits to realize the deepness of the meanings and to give an important value to the light that lend to three-dimensionality and the sculptural appearance of the subjects. Each print by Mario Cravo Neto has a pure meaning that has his roots in a creative and unique language able to mix up religion and tradition, violence and drama, nature and culture.
