Duccio Malagamba - 
Brasilia


November 07, 2009 /



A mixture of vast open spaces and magnificent monuments contrasting with calm residential areas."

/Duccio Malagamba

When the city of Brasilia turned 50, photographer Duccio Malagamba travelled to the Brazilian capital to capture the everyday life of this super-scaled utopia with its grand avenues laid out by Lucio Costa and dramatic modernist buildings by Oscar Niemeyer.

Duccio Malagamba's reportage was meant to portray this curious mixture of vast open spaces and magnificent monuments contrasting with calm residential areas, discovering new facets of the young Brazilian capital. As an architect, he was interested to see the worldwide known textbook buildings with his own eyes and observe the way they blend in with the city everyday life.
For Duccio the major task of an architectural photographer is to inspire the observer rather than being concerned about his objectivity. He photographs with studied concentration, analyzing the subject slowly and meticulously. The results are "architectural reportages,"  rather than a series of separate shots, that aim to transmit a complex range of emotions, experiences and thoughts and are intended to provide a full, multi-faceted view that "tells" the viewer about the buildings.
