‘Depois Daquele Beijo’
‘Depois Daquele Beijo’, which means ‘After That Kiss’, was the awkward Brazilian title for Antonioni’s ‘Blow Up’.
Montenegro states that he watched the movie when he was a teenager and instantly decided that Photography would be his profession.
He has assembled the series by extracting small details from the frames of old black and white movies and anonymous internet videos.
Part of the series will be exhibited by Carcara Photo Art gallery at the upcoming ArtRio fair, beginning October 14 in Rio de Janeiro.
Milton Montenegro, born in 1954 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, has been making images since seven years old, when he won a box camera as a birthday gift.
In the mid-‐eighties, he pioneered digital photography techniques by taking part on the early stages of computer graphics.
His work belongs to several collections, such as Coleção Pirelli/MASP, Harvard University Fogg Art Museum, Museu de Arte do Rio and Fondazione Italiana per la Fotografia.
Apart from his personal work, he currently develops the photo-‐editing mobile app The Cool Cam.
