Published on the occasion of the exhibition held from January 5 to September 26, 2021 at the IMS Paulista in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The exhibition is born from the partnership between the Instituto Moreira Salles and the Instituto Mario Cravo Neto, who through a commodatum with the IMS, comprise a collection of about 100 thousand images from photographer Mario Cravo Neto (Salvador, BA 1947-2009). The exhibition accounts for the artist's trajectory and work, renowned for his transit in various languages, atmospheres and territories presenting close to 250 selected photographs from the collection, in addition to sculptures, illustrated notebooks, letters and photographs of original copies of the artist, among others, totaling 319 items. The trajectory of Bahian photographer begins in the mid-1960s, but it will be from his one-year stay in New York, between 1969 and 1970, that his photographic work acquires experimental power. From the 1970's until his untimely death in 2009, his work will know different moments, exploring atmospheres, textures and varied themes - from magnificent portraits in infinite background, to the melee with popular culture and Afro-Brazilian religiosity, through the no less remarkable series of cars and subways in NY, from the fire in the landscape, children, to his own family and everyday life.
