by valrac4_a3kqdy

Nico Oved, a Toronto photographer, spent three years living, working and experiencing the far corners of Brazil.In his upcoming photography exhibition Habitat: Brasil, he mirrors the contradictions of Brazilian society in architectural images. The mundane, domestic and utilitarian constructions of everyday people contrast with images of Brazil’s master-planned capital city: Brasília.

In addition, Nico exhibits photos from Rio’s famous hillside favela shantytowns, São Paulo’s Cortiço squats, a nearly inaccessible island fishing town in Bahia and a subsistence farming village in the Amazon. The exhibition is presented by The Department Gallery Mainspace, Toronto from August 5 to 28, 2010.
