São Paulo: The Walter Firmo Collection


Until October 31, the Ímã Foto Galeria will be exhibiting works taken from the archives of Walter Firmo, one of Brazil’s most important photographers. The event brings together nearly 30 images covering the photographer’s career from the slums of Rio to the presidency of the Funarte National Institute of Photography. Also on display are Firmo’s historical portraits in color and black and white, taken while working for Brazil’s largest newspapers. Known for his work on folklore and culture, Firmo has received numerous awards (winning the Nikon Photo Contest seven times between 1973 and 1985), including the Golden Dolphin Award from Rio de Janeiro’s State Government. “This is the first time that Walter presents his collection in Sao Paulo,” says Egberto Nogueira, the curator of the exhibition and the director of the gallery. “These photographs are very dear to him, and each unites visual beauty with emotional power.”
