“My universe has always revolved around the words, of fictional creation. I suddenly realized the obvious: Images also tell their stories.

Photography is a universe of looks. It is only possible to visually interpret the world in another way when one is permanently aware of what is happening around her.. If the poet seeks the right word, the photographer literally hunts for the image that pleases him most, the one who can perceive and capture.

Walter Macedo Filho has a whole poetics based on the observation of detail. The perception of your gaze is carried out by the concept that there is a lot to see when you are permanently attentive. The ways of seeing are many – and the perceptions are absurdly infinite and vary according to the sensitivity and references of each one..

The wonderful game of art is established when each person's ability to see dialogues with the look of the person receiving the image.. Enter a cluttered cosmos, because art is precisely a world of its own in which a balanced disorder predominates that allows multiple feelings. Views converge and diverge, but don't fight for space.

There isn't one look better than the other, but a multiplicity of affections. Walter Macedo Filho presents in his images the predominance of geometric elements, lights and shadows. Thus, with subtle serenity and sensitivity, builds a unique and differentiated look at a reality that is always renewed if we know how to observe it.
