Exhibit of prominent Brazilian contemporary photographer. Omar has spent 20 years in the study of the human face in order to produce this still unfinished series. The objective is to abstract reality and capture the expression. Much of his work is in large format (one square meter). Text by Ligia Canoniga. Good reference on his work.
