Brazil is a traditionally catholic country and consequently Mary, the mother of Jesus, is eminently revered. Diamantina has more than half a dozen churches that are dedicated to Our Lady. This one is Our Lady of the Rosary, captured in the late afternoon sun against an ominously dark sky.
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.
We look forward to seeing more of Sérgio’s images.
