In Miguel’s photographs, it is not so much the subject - although always extracted directly from his immediate surroundings - that we see in each image but instead the light and the colour, treated in the same way in all his work. Through the contrasting and dramatic use of the frame, the light and colour, Rio Branco works to express in a very personal way situations that are most common and immediate.
Theartist’s experience in the world of cinema (a fundamental course for a photographer) is reflected for him in the importance thatplaying with space and time has in the set-up of his work. His installations involve photographs and videos that work on building a disconnected discourse of accumulated, juxtaposed images but always with foundations in the same symbolic nexus.
