Brasília - Brasilia, Brasilia - Federal District, Brazil
Born in Brasilia in 1986, Vitor Schietti has a Bachelor's degree in Communications through the University of Brasilia.
Vitor Schietti is a professional photographer specialised in advertising photography for private and government clients, ranging from small to big assignments in all sorts of photography: studio, travel, aerial, underwater, fashion and so on. Vitor is the founder of Schietti Fotografia, a four years old enterprise, which functions in a studio at the heart of Brasilia. Among its clients there are Microsoft, Bank of Brazil, Ministeries of Health, of Sports and of Tourism, Government of Brasilia.
Documentary and reportage are also part of Schietti’s repertory, mostly for local clients and to his own investigative initiatives, as demonstrated by series posted on his blog, Calefaction (within his website).
Schietti also coursed filmmaking at the New York Film Academy, in Los Angeles, and Direction of Photography at the Academia Internacional de Cinema, in Sao Paulo. He participated in several art exhibitions, individual and collective, through Brasilia, New York and India. Long exposure and light painting photography presents itself as one of his favourite techniques for such aesthetic desires, which he applied on the ongoing project “Impermanent Sculptures”, which reached global notoriety in late 2015.
It is in the presence of another that we come to understand ourselves. Upon witnessing a smile, a lament, a distant gaze or a deep glance we learn a bit more about human nature. The portrait is a lesson about the plurality of the soul – not necessarily alluding to spirituality, but as an essence, something we share with each fellow human, regardless of nationality, gender, age or ethnical background.
The portraits chosen for this series sojourn through the crests and crevasses of the human condition, in a search with no beginning and no end. Some of the subjects – aware of the camera’s presence – meant to render a facet that best represented them. Others, however, were completely oblivious of the presence of an attentive observer in pursuit of such essence – a vain pursuit, seeing as the soul cannot unveil itself completely. It is, nevertheless, a valid endeavor, as it captures for a brief moment a few of the colors refracted in such an organic prism.
Public administration is strong in Brasilia, the capital of Brazil. Among clients my studiuo usually works for there are several Ministeries, the Brasilia Government, the Presidency Comunication Office and many others. Image standards are high and so are the responsabilites.
