José Diniz

Maritimas

A day trip to the beach is probably one of the most photographed events in human life. In his dark black and white photos Jose Diniz transcends the clichés that accompany it. The photos were taken from in the water, in order to thus convey different physical and mental experiences to the viewer – lack of balance, giddiness, harmony, continuous movement and the salty taste. Because of the low camera angle, the waves grow into moving mountains, which symbolize the various relationships between man and the sea.

José Diniz (Brazil, 1954) studied photography at Cândido Mendes University in Rio de Janeiro, where he still lives and works. In addition to photography he also studied marketing, internet technology and knowledge management. In 2008 he published the book Literariamente, and in 2012 won the Marc Ferrez Photography Prize from the Brazilian Ministry of Cultuur.
