About the artist

Antonio Salaverry is a Brazilian photographer born in Rio de Janeiro, 1986. He used to work as an engineer for one of the largest companies in Brazil but decided to dedicate full time to photography. His Portfolio has a wide range of different styles and genres, from urban and nature scenes to street and event photography, portraits, abstract or wide angle architecture and also digitally enhanced images.

Awarded nationally and internationally in major competitions, he likes to think that this is only the start. To him, photographing in the field is just the beginning of an artistic process which takes its final form after digitally editing and processing the image and aims to transport the observer into a universe different from the usual one. 

"Antonio perceives the world around us as an unlimited source of visual ingredients for his creations. Architecture provides him with lines, curves, three-dimensional geometries and light/shadow interactions. Armed with incredible sensitivity he captures perfect angles, creates unique arrangements and turns them into visual gems. In his fine art architectural photography, Antonio tries to achieve a minimalistic composition. Black and white is therefore an obvious choice for him: it is about getting rid of the color distraction and trying to show the soul of the architect. The more famous the building is, the more interesting the challenge of coming up with something original."
