Artists | Mário Macilau



Professional photographer, with an already consolidated and awarded career, the artist seeks to encourage positive exchanges between different cultures, places and perspectives. Taking the portrait as a starting point, Macilau creates an atmosphere of intimacy from which broader perspectives or narratives emerge. The photographic technique used by the artist is crucial for creating rich compositions (black and white, with soft tones and textures), where depth of field and natural light – sometimes resulting in a dark background or underexposed – give a subtle and poetic atmosphere to your images. Mascilau had his works exhibited at spaces and events such as: 56th Venice Biennale (Italy), Saatchi Gallery (England), Rencontres de Bamako (Mali), Photo Spring (China), International Biennial of Casablanca (Morocco), Guggenheim Museum , among others.
