The Unveil’d Photobook Award 2015
Tempo Arenoso, Elaine Pessoa
“Tempo Arenoso is a photo essay that seeks to translate a concept of time, specialised time. I propose through literary dialogue with the image, portray the experiences of an atmosphere and a temporality that involved people, a river, a town and the relationship between them. Through a photographic narrative references in Bergson and Mario Benedetti, Sandy Time account how people relate to the River Plate. A river that flows from northwest to southeast, which has a second margin and the point where the waters are no longer sweet and become the ocean. A river barely runs, it seems sea and you might want to be a lake.
A river ceases to be a river by the taste and he accumulation of vivencias those that flow into. Experiences an atmosphere that involves people, a river, a town and the relationship between them, embodied temporally and impregnated grains that are grouped, as the dust of time that provided an imagistic density, consisting of sand brought by the wind that time pulsates from northwest to southeast.” – Elaine Pessoa
