Sertão Cerrado José Diniz


  • OAS F Street Gallery 1889 F Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20006

We are pleased to announce Sertão Cerrado, an exhibition of photographs by Brazilian artist José Diniz. Sertão refers to backland region located inside the country, far from the coast. The Cerrado occupies much of the interior. The region has a great potential of water feeding the aquifers and hydrographic basins responsible for the supply to major cities. The Cerrado has a cycle of fire and water, after periods of drought and fire, explodes green and flowers, from the ashes. Diniz’s photographs originated from the want to describe the interior as a counterpoint the sea. The investigation led to an exhibition representing four elements of nature: earth, water, fire and air.
