This project is articulated by photographs of ordinary buildings. Compositions formed by lines and shaded surfaces seek to find an abstract and minimalist aesthetic in the daily life of the urban environment. The intention is to suggest that art can be perceived anywhere by anyone. By moving away from the realistic representation of its object - the architectural building - and adopting a visual record close to the drawing or engraving, each image provokes doubts and stimulates the questioning of the photographic language itself. “Lines of Shadow”, in short, is an invitation to look.

Photographer and architect, José Roberto Bassul lives in Brasília. He has received several awards, including the 1st place at the Int'l Photography Awards 2018 and the title of Book Photographer of the Year at the Moscow Int'l Foto Awards 2020.

He has works in important private and public collections such as the National Museum of the Republic in Brasília, the Museum of Photography in Fortaleza, and MAR - Museum of Art of Rio de Janeiro.
