NEW YORK, NY.- The first major U.S. solo exhibition of noted Brazilian photographer Caio Reisewitz will be on view at the International Center of Photography from May 16 through September 7, 2014. During the past two decades, Reisewitz has produced a compelling body of color photographic work that explores the rapidly changing relationship between urban and rural in modern-day Brazil. His images draw attention to the challenge the nation’s economic development now poses to its lush natural environment and rich architectural heritage.

Organized by ICP curator Christopher Phillips, the exhibition Caio Reisewitz will present a selection of the artist’s works made between 2003 and 2013. The show will feature a group of meditative architectural interiors that reflect Reisewitz’s fascination with Brazil’s colonial heritage as well as the accomplishments of the country’s 20th-century modernist architects. A section devoted to large-scale color photographs depicts the largely untouched rainforests that are now endangered by Brazil’s explosive economic growth. Most of these works were made within a few hundred miles of São Paulo, in remnants of the Mata Atlântica (Atlantic Forest) that once blanketed Brazil’s east coast.

The exhibition also highlights Reisewitz’s recent handmade photo collages in which images of urban environments are embedded in scenes presenting the green expanses of Brazil’s forests. These inventive works employ a playful, jazzlike visual idiom that recalls Brazil’s rich tradition of modernist art.

Born in São Paulo in 1967, Reisewitz studied at the Kunstakademie Mainz in Mainz, Germany, before returning to Brazil to launch his photographic career. Although his admiration for such German photographers as Thomas Struth, Candida Höfer, and Andreas Gursky is evident in the meticulous accuracy of his monumental color photographs, Reisewitz has developed his own immediately recognizable approach to the portrayal of Brazil’s landscape and architecture. His work has been widely exhibited in Latin America and Europe, and he represented Brazil at the 2005 Venice Biennale with a solo exhibition titled Threatened Paradise. His photographs were recently featured in the landmark exhibition América Latina 1960–2013 at the Fondation Cartier in Paris.
