A personal selection of photographs with their stories.
DECEMBER 2006: Church mirror
One of the most remarkable churches you can think of is located in Belo Horizonte, at the margin of Pampulha Lake. A church with a separate tower and cross, a church with an undulating roof, as if they were waves on a stormy lake. It is a masterpiece of architect Oscar Niemeyer. The São Francisco de Assis (St. Francis) Church is open for visitors, but it is not allowed to take photos inside. You will have to try through the windows. I had the misfortune that these windows reflected the light. They reflected the image of Pampulha Lake, and the IATE Clube, also designed by Niemeyer. The church attracts many visitors, and one of them was nice enough to walk through my image.
