Albuquqerque, Chico1952

Instituto Moreira Salles

Instituto Moreira Salles

A pioneer of Brazilian advertising in the 1940s, an eminent portraitist, the head of the team that put together the photography department at Editora Abril in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and an essayist fascinated by the typical themes of his native land, the state of Ceará. All these aspects of Chico Albuquerque’s work fed a collection of nearly 70,000 images, which has been preserved at the IMS’ Photography Archive in Rio de Janeiro since July 2006, as part of a partnership with the São Paulo Museu da Imagem e do Som.
