Natureza Viva by photographer Lucia Adverse (born 1967) was curated by Ricardo Fernandes and edited by Silvana Editoriale, printed in Rome, Italy in 2019.
Lucia Adverse proposes in this work a real forest of female portraits.
She researched female artists who lived their lives intensely, studied their biographies and identified them with trees, as if she wanted to extract human expression from nature. Thus, we discover that what began as a photographic exercise turned into creative interpretation, taking fragments from the lives of real characters, personal facts, contemporary identification and real emotions.
This is the first book from the artist Lucia Adverse with critical texts by curator Ricardo Fernandes, the Brazilian photographer and Brazilian contemporary Historian Camila Schenkel. Graphic design by Finish artist Sami Korhonen.
