Photography: Sérgio Oliveira


According to the Portuguese Institute of Photography, photographic composition is “the set of rules and conventions that condition the organization of the several elements that make up an image”.

So to say, the act of photographing is a constant attempt to put a frame around something that appears before our eyes.

The composition of this black and white image captured by Sérgio Oliveira is especially happy and rich, creating a visual melody with the elements that presented themselves before his lens.
