  • Title: Encontro em Altamira
  • Date: c.1980s - c.1980s
  • Physical Dimensions: w11 x h7.5 in
  • Photographer: Miguel Chikaoka
  • Description: Encontro em Altamira contrasts the profile of a woman with a nude, truncated torso. Chikaoka’s memories inspired a number of his photographs during the 1980s, and this photograph clearly adopts a more subjective approach than the socially conscious work for which he is best known. The title likely refers to Altamira, Brazil, and suggests an encounter of an erotic nature. Chikaoka uses the jarring juxtaposition of two distinct images to create an image indicative of the selective nature of memory. -Text by Mark Andrew White
