Cássio Vasconcellos (1965-) is a Brazilian photographer from São Paulo. He studied photography at Imagem-Ação school in São Paulo before starting a photojournalist career. In parallel with reports and advertising orders, he conducts personal work. Recognized by both his peers and critics, his photographs explore the themes of travel and displacement. Thus, his series of nocturnal photographs are like intriguing urban strolls, punctuated by multi-colored lighting. Cássio Vasconcellos also immerses us in the lush vegetation of the Amazon in his series A picturesque voyage through Brazil. Displacement can also be illustrated through the modes of locomotion: roads, planes, cars... that Vasconcellos photographs from the sky. Their repetition gives them the appearance of very simple motives, nested in a logic that goes beyond them.
