"The Rio-born photographer Vavá Ribeiro based between his hometown and New York is set to launch his new exhibition, titled "Pseudoscience" ("Pseudociência"). Held at . : Galeria_Mezanino : ., at Mundo Mix in São Paulo, Brazil, from August until September 14th, the solo show will be displaying mostly his early portraits between 1999-2003, all shot in New York. Working with Polaroids Type 55 and portraits of androgynous characters, Ribeiro's ambiguous images are deceptive and somewhat strange. Using both professional models and friends, he played with multiple exposures, and awkward body language, where the end product was printed with asymmetric masks and particular crops. It was all analog so that the results were unique and unrepeatable. The whole series has a certain scientific aura to it, juxtaposing words from different languages paired with the images in Latin, German, and English to create a sense of mystery and magic." -Dazed Digital | Dazed & Confused Magazine | Fashion, Art, Fashion, Music, Film, Ideas.
