José Diniz - Periscope, Terceiro Nome, 2014, São Paulo

 

Softcover in transparent plastic dust jacket, edition of 900 copies, signed, design by Ekaterina Kholmogorova.
„For eight years, photographer José Diniz searched the Brazilian coastline as a castaway. All the way from Maranhão to Rio Grande do Sul - extending through Uruguay - he captured images of people, buildings, the horizon and the sea always from a particular perspective: facing, under or over the water.
Contrary to what many might think, Diniz did not use a periscope (optical device that allows one to see over obstacles, as in submarines), as suggested by the name of the book . "The title is just a metaphor for the way of observation I have chosen. It is as if my eyes were not enough to see and shoot in those conditions. The camera was at a point below the horizon and the waves were moving mountains”.
"This is a powerfully strong first book from a long-time photographer from Brazil – Jose Diniz. It is always good for the international photobook community to ‘discover’ a virtually never seen before master of the photographic craft." Matthew Carson, ICP“
