Guy Veloso was born (1969) and works in Belém (Amazon), Brazil. Took part of the 29th International Biennial of Art of Sao Paulo /2010
"Guy Veloso went searching here - in the depths of the fantastic mysticism of the processions of Father Cicero- a relaxation, or perhaps a metaphor for a world to vast for his 35mm camera. A language well resolved and ready for a blatant leap of quality it insinuates", João Paulo Farkas, Art Critic and photographer. Catalog of the 19th edition of "Arte Pará", 2000.
"India has been the source of inspiration of many photographers of varied generations. In the images of Guy Veloso, the portrait of its people and landscapes emerges with a layer of graphism and a luminosity laboriously worked on in black and white, which stresses the technical development and the permanent passion of the author for the photographic language. Thus, the path chosen by Guy, both in Brazil and in India, shows the affective strings of one who knows how to touch heart of things", Ângela Magalhães e Nadja Peregrino, curators and Researcher in photo-graphy. Text of the individual exposition named "Shanti - The Path of the Indies", 1998.
"Guy escapes from banal, from the exotic, aspects so ordinary in the works of these sort. In his images, we find the signs of time and millenary tradition; however, we cannot keep from perceive the look of the photographer, who seizes with a serenity only reached by those who really know what they photograph", Paulo Mattar, curator of the Visual Arts department of UFF - Fluminense University (Rio de Janeiro). Text of the vernissage of the individual exposition "Shanti – The Path of the Indies", 1998.
