How to find freedom in our daily visual journey? We photograph our breakfast and it has to look tasty. We photograph ourselves and we have to look good. Photography can become a tool of judgment. How do we get some freedom in this system?

André Feliciano’s work thinks about our photographic connection to the world, suggesting a kind of photography where nature is the photographer and we can pose without judgment.

When a flower takes a picture, we are free from our typical daily photography constraints and we can develop a new kind of freedom in our photographic life.
