Curated by Gustavo Prado
" . . . a giant leap for mankind,” continues the celebrated phrase from July 20, 1969, uttered by Neil Armstrong when he touched down on the lunar surface. Why did curator Gustavo Prado resort to this as the title for his text on the world of entertainment captured by Pedro Meyer?
Although the most direct response may be found at the end of his lines—alluding to Pedro’s pioneering work, which gave rise to the use of the digital medium for photographic creation, the reference is also pertinent for the spectacular quality of those lunar images that, just as the actions or scenes staged in front of Meyer’s camera “were made to be seen".
