By Ricardo Hage de Matos
Photo book

 

In “Plains of Spain” braziliam photographer Ricardo Hage presents pictures produced while traveling through Spain in the winter of 2010.
His photos, always obtained from inside trains, automobiles, airplanes and buses, have a duality between the technically perfect image and blur, distressed, faded photos.
The light is always a vital component in the work of Ricardo: if abundantly present the image suffers less, the camera’s sensitivity increases and decreases distortion. Where, instead, the light fades, a new image, full of mystery and fantastic distortions appears.
We follow the images of the artist as someone looking for missing elements in a puzzle. Sometimes, watching a small area of his pictures, we find scenes of great drama, that are not even imagined if we look at the images without attention.

culturalinterdisciplinarity

In “Cultural interdisciplinarity” Ricardo Hage de Matos features essays built on top of his practice as a researcher in the field of Education, Arts and interdisciplinarity having as guiding principle the idea of culture.
According to the author, “In the studies presented here the reader will find a bit of Art, Research and Education underlying all the reflections that I develop. Each paper specifically focus it’s interest into certain one of those categories without, however, totally forget this set of principles.
