After Night has Fallen

Sérgio Miranda has been documenting Diamantina with his camera for about 15 years. He switched to digital photography less than two years ago, and  has maintained the discipline of carefully studying and composing each frame, rather than shooting indiscriminately and selecting the best images later.

By creating a forum on facebook, “Clickphoto Diamantina“,  he’s encouraging others to do the same. Today he is sharing with us a series of nocturnal images, capturing the poetry and magic that can be felt everywhere after the town has gone to sleep.

Chimerical Diamantina

These black and white pictures taken in Diamantina by Jorge Vasconcelos were selected by the photographer from the series  “Visão Plástica – Beleza e Descaso” (Plastic Vision – Beauty and Neglect).

They were taken with a Holga, an analog camera with a plastic lens. The imperfections of the lens blur the edges and distort the images in a unique way, imbuing them with a soft, dreamlike quality.
