The Galeria de Arte Fotospaço, one of the few spaces in Rio dedicated to the art of the cameraman, this month showcases the latest work of Brazilian artist José Diniz. The entirely black and white collection focuses on the sea and coast but avoids the obvious impulse to associate them with images of sunshine and relaxation. Diniz's work is instead bleak, eerie and even a little chilling an attempt to fully submerge the viewer in his visuals.

Winner of the 2012 Marc Ferrez Photography award and nominee of the British Journal of Photography as one of the world's 20 photographers to watch in 2013, Diniz’s success has flourished in recent years. Born in Niteroí, he first began snapping at the age of ten under the influence of his grandfather, himself an amateur photographer and founder of the Sociedade Fluminense de Fotografia. While his artistic works have previously included video, printmaking and installation, the photographic image remains at the centre of his creativity, primarily black and white. Diniz has received a range of awards and honorable mentions and has exhibited his work worldwide, from his native Brazil and neighbouring Uruguay and Argentina to Krasnodar in Russia.
