Watching the world


Here Geraldo Melo is presented as a flâneur, an observant traveler who goes to cities throughout the world in search of cultural similarities. In his visualness I notice a sharp, episodic perspective; or rather each image of this set has its route, a particular story that is a whole within itself. We are not facing the traditional narrative of an urban behavior tale in which the set suggests chapters that indicate a plot. They are fragments of the mystical, sacred, mysterious, sensual, geometric and landscaping world where the human figure is sometimes carefully crafted by the author suggesting, perhaps, the fragility of men facing vastness.
