Human Images

From August 15th to September 27th, the Caixa Cultural de São Paulo, placed at Se Cathedral, will host the exhibition Human Images, by the photographer João Roberto Ripper. The exhibition will present 70 pictures about his entire career. The feature is a big board where it's possible to find about 200 pictures of Brazilian people faces from different regions of Brazil, etnies and colors, selected from his personal archive of over 150 thousand pictures.

During the 35 years of his carrier, Ripper has mixed his photographic skills with his social activism as anyone else. Ripper covered Brazil from north to south, with a poetic eye and investigative vein, and received several international awards with his work focused on human rights.

Human Image is the first solo exhibition of Ripper in Brazil. The exhibition encourages the public to observe the Brazilian people in their individuality, by the same photographer's point of view.

The 'Debate Human Images - Photography and Human Rights', on September 9th at 7pm, at CAIXA Cultural da Sé is also part of the event. The debate has the participation of John the Ripper and journalist Roberto and Ph.D. in Political Science Leonardo Sakamoto (coordinator of the NGO Reporter Brazil and CONATRAE - Comissão Nacional para a Erradicação do Trabalho Escravo [National Commission for the Eradication of Slave Labor]).
