REVOGO Curated by Thomas Roma

Opened on October 10, 2015 at CAIXA Cultural in São Paulo - RUNNING THRU December 6, 2015


Individually, the photographs of “Revogo,” like all of the best photographs, ask more questions than they answer. Seen together, they create an intense and telling portrait of a place in time made by a brilliant photographer of his country. During the three years André Liohn spent photographing the people and neighborhoods of Brazil, he brought the same fearlessness of his well-known and lauded conflict photography to a very personal mission. Focusing his unflinching attention close to home, he draws the viewer through a narrative that at once retains his signature bluntness, exposing the despair of the current state, and expresses a nuanced compassion and tenderness that lays bare his understanding of and attachment to the place. In creating this new, powerful body of work, Liohn, free of the constraint of short form photojournalism, shares his vision of contemporary Brazil over an extended group of photographs, allowing the viewer to experience the depth and complexity of his subject and his creative ability. With these sixty extraordinary images, André Liohn is asking us to question and ultimately revoke the forces that create the circumstances within them, but really he is demanding that the viewer accept and engage with the humanity so passionately and beautifully described. - Thomas Roma

A selection from what will be on display in Rome this fall at Museo D'Arte Contemporanea Roma for the FOTOGRAFIA Festivale Internazionale 2014  

"Though our dogs often seem to love us sapiens even better than we love each other, their other side is prehistoric and feral. There they are spoor-nuzzlers, tongue-raiders, offal-eaters, parasites, terrorists. What a sharp idea Thomas Roma has had, don’t you think? — that we should see as much bandit dog-spirit in their shadows as in their faces or their clever bodies. Maybe more. It’s a notion almost as doggish as the mutts themselves."                                                                                                                                                             - Leo Rubinfien
