Botanical Garden of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – 2013
In a mixture of documentation and imagination, photographer Marcelo Tinoco creates wild, hyper-realistic scenes in the series Fotorama. The work is a composite of multiple photographs originally captured as visual notes and pieces for the final, elaborate puzzle. In this particular photo, Tinoco blends various images together to create a fictionalized vision of a garden in Rio de Janeiro. Here lush vegetation and colorful creatures abound, the Brazilian landscape opening wide full of exploration and wonder.
