The MaPa Gallery participates in SP-Foto 2018 with its collection of photoclubism and vintage photojournalism, covering the periods from 1940 to 1970.
In the photoclub, we present a collection of Photo Clube Brasileiro (RJ) with the modernist work of the photographers Orlando Pilo Duarte, Ferenc Aszmann, José Lambert, among others. And by José Mauro Pontes, an amateur photographer who worked during the 1950s, a member of Foto Cine Clube Bandeirante.
Founded in 1923 by a group of amateur photographers, the Brazilian Photo Club is now considered the first photoclube to actually organize in the country. In addition to the publications he edited as Photo Magazine Brazil and Photogramma, he promoted courses, competitions, exhibitions and excursions. Photo Clube Brasileiro was an institution that disseminated technical and aesthetic innovations, reaching an important performance for the development of Brazilian art photography until the end of the 1940s.
The prestige of photojournalism began to gain prominence from the beginning of the 1960s, due to some factors such as the social situation of the country that changed drastically with the advent of military dictatorship and the influence of international publications.
There are more than 20 images from the collections of the newspapers Última Hora, The Tribuna da Imprensa and Camera Press, during the 60s and 70s.
