MARIO CRAVO NETO

Mario Cravo Neto, who died in 2009, was one of the most important Brazilian photographers of all time. The gallery, which represents his works exclusively for Europe, also collaborates with the new Mario Cravo Neto Foundation in Brazil. 

His most famous works of the ’80s and ‘90s 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
