DESCRIPTIONLiving monuments shine red from a silent corner of the forest. The micro landscape of wild Brazil, from the perspective of a trippy Coleoptera.
Captured with my Nikon D810.
AUTHOR- The Concept -
I’m a landscape photographer based on Planet Earth. A geologist, and a deep observer of nature. A traveler who has been freezing moments for more than 10 years.
My photography is an immersive trip around the surface of a planet. Its construction is based on visions. How can the Earth be felt? It’s about impossible landscapes that actually exist. Perspectives and perceptions.
It’s also about walking, driving and flying. Shifting lands. Trekking, trekking and trekking. Into the wild. Watching everything from the summit. Heading all the way back to the valley.
And my mission is to induce a state of contemplation inside your head. Expose yourself to deep beauty and let your eyes do the talking. Shift your perspectives. Blow your mind! In a way that the "preserve" mantra will echo there till the end of your time.
- The Trail -
I was born in Minas Gerais (Brazil): a land where the hills assume shapes of waves in a stormy sea. Deep nature always around. Lots of green and blue.
Since the beginning of my time, I have been exploring the powerful Brazilian nature in a very intimate way. My father (Roberto Murta), who happens to be an outstanding wildlife photographer, would show me the profound beauty of life and lands from all perspectives.
As a result of my strong affection for nature, I decided to study Earth Sciences. During my graduate and master’s degrees in geology, in addition to falling even more deeply for our Earth, I learned to read its language. My senses became even more aware of nature’s magic.
Since I was about 20 years old, I do everything I can to travel around and experience nature on its most varied shapes, colors and temperatures. That is now my a life goal!
