Theatro Santa Isabel, Recife, Brazil, 2010

Theatro Santa Isabel, Recife, Brazil, 2010

Prior to a performance of Brazilian carnival music and dance, I photographed part of the audience assembled in the balconies of this 135 year old opera house. Using a 24mm wideangle focal length, I was able to stretch the scene from the oval ceiling down to the main floor. A man stands, hands on hips, to survey the scene from the center of the second balcony, offering a focal point to the image, and providing a scale contrast expressing the grandeur of the scene.
