Whether for the documentary record of historic buildings, or for capturing tourist images, true travel trophies, photography has always been interested in the symbolism of monuments.
The series "Monumenta" approaches this tradition with irony. Images made in Brasilia, city-monument, relativize the importance of its iconic buildings.
Blurred and inaccurate, the photographs in this series are more interested in people than in the monuments they capture. Indifference, estrangement, affront or rambling are attitudes that assert the human condition faced with the monumental iconography of the Capital of Brazil.
