Mergulho (Dive), the new photographic series by Tito Mouraz, offers a unique journey through the landscapes of the Azores.
Starting from a previous understanding of the physical, human and emotional geography of the Azores archipelago, the project confronts the known and the unknown.
Through an experimental process exploring the instant film and chemical transfers, the Portuguese photographer addresses the possibilities and limitations of photographic language, creating a series of unique pieces that brings life to a dreamlike universe and new form of visual representation.
