 “Light Records are Poetry”

Photography and Poetry Exhibition

from Osvaldo Janeiro and Sandra Fernandes


“Light Records are Poetry” is an encounter with art: Photography and Poetry. The exhibition gathers the visions of the artists, Osvaldo Janeiro and Sandra Fernandes, in different “looks”, but in common senses.

Through the lens of the photographer Osvaldo Janeiro the places in the parish of Conceição in Ribeira Grande are captured and taken to public in its most natural way, allowing memories and experiences to be rescued, taking places and wisdom beyond.

What we see triggers emotions and feelings inside us, and in this sense the Poetry of Sandra Fernandes gives us a “voice” to the captured images. On a symbiosis between Photography and Poetry, in which the images speak and are Poetry, and the Poetry is the mirror that portraits emotions and sensations, Osvaldo Janeiro and Sandra Fernandes, even though they dedicate their inspiration to different arts, with this partnership, they demonstrate that art is more fulfilling the more clustering it is.
