Street photographer Gustavo Minas captured this layered and multi-dimensional image at a metro station in Miami, Florida. The photograph compresses several depths of interest using reflections, playing up the crisscrossing geometry of the buildings. The warm and cool colors work together in kaleidoscopic effect, questioning which way is up or down.
Gustavo Minas first got hooked on photography during school when he was studying journalism. It was a class on photojournalism that taught him to notice things through a lens, whether it was vivid colors, deep shadows, or geometric compositions. After graduation, he took a job as an economics reporter at a newspaper, but always found himself waking up early to wander the streets of São Paulo and capture the warm light of the morning. “Many days I come back home with nothing worth a second look, but now and then magic happens, and this is what keeps me going back to the streets over and over.” Although Gustavo’s artwork is powerfully impactful, his demeanor remains humble. “My studio is small and cozy, just a table and iMac in the living room of my apartment. Photography is mostly a hobby for me, and I think that’s why I take so much pleasure from it.”
