Brazilian photographer Mario Cravo Netto was the son of a sculptor. Netto carves with light; shards of warm tones ripple through the silky shadows to give his work a unique quality. Man and nature, elegance and grace- the earthly and the spiritual world are juxtaposed in his frames. We feel and we remember in his work the connectivity of all natural things.

Netto passed last year, yet at only 62 he had accomplished memorable work. He was awarded Best Photographer of the Year from the Paulista Association of Art Critics; received the National Prize of Photography from Brazil's National Arts Foundation; and the Mario Pedrosa Award from the Brazilian Association of Art Critics.
