Photography Exhibition



Maria Rita Santos

22 November to 10 December

Monday to Friday from 2pm to 8pm

(Except holidays)


My project is based on exploring the movement of my body and its shadow. 

My idea was to achieve a sequence of images in which there was a shadow that was impossible to be projected, that did not follow the usual principles of light/shadow. 

I am a dancer and I work with the movement of my body, so I thought it would be interesting to include an element that would contradict this projection, as a disobedience.

This visual essay was achieved from long exposures, with only one light source and was developed in the authorial project module, in the photography course at Escola Profissional de Imagem.
