Paula Guimarães - Living Nature
|Publisher||This Side Up|
‘Living Nature’ is a captivating collection of photographs produced in various locations around the world. Based in Mexico, photographer Paula Guimarães is drawn to lush landscapes and vegetation but also creates manipulations of overlaid images. Female nudes also figure prominently in her work, often positioned as lithe extensions of the natural setting or ghostly nymphs who almost fade away in the background. The images, which were shot in Mexico, Costa Rica, Portugal, Myanmar, Thailand, and Shelter Island (New York), are accompanied by brief poems. From raging waters to serene pools and from stately palms to dense thickets, Guimarães has her fingers on nature’s pulse.
