About

32"x48" edition of 3 signed by the artist Júlia Pontés is an environmental aerial photographer based in São Paulo and New York. This photograph captures the intense beauty and the environmentally devastating impact of mining in Brazil. The human and environmental impact of open pit mines and mining in Brazil are often obscured by the region’s mountainous terrain, relatively inaccessible to the local population. Working in collaboration with a pilot, Pontés has been photographing from above, sometimes flying in forbidden air space to capture these stunning images of the mining industry and increasing awareness. (b.1983 - Minas Gerais, Brazil) - Based in São Paulo and New York. Júlia Pontés interests are influenced by psychology, social issues, and public policy, in which she holds a Master’s Degree. She worked as an iron ore trader, an entrepreneur and for the Buenos Aires Government before dedicating to the arts. Júlia Pontés graduated at the International Center of Photography in 2015 and she has been chosen twice for the Emerging Immigrant Artist Program by the New York Foundation for the Arts. She was a Photography & Media and a Video & Film MFA candidate at CalArts, where was granted a Lillian Disney Scholarship and was recently awarded an Allan Sekula Social Documentary grant. Júlia Pontés has had a one woman exhibition during Tiradentes Photo Festival, in a XVIII century chapel recently restored and two one woman exhibition at Museu de Cogonhas in Brazil. Júlia Pontés photographs have been shown in several group shows in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Philadelphia, Guatemala and Buenos Aires. Her work will be displayed at the Art Museum of the Americas, in D.C. in 2019. She has a polarized practice that involves documenting stories linked to her own life experiences and, on the other hand, a self portraiture practice. In both, she applies experimental techniques, the use of different mediums and archive material. Currently, she is dedicated to a social and environmental project about mining. This activity is deeply rooted in the Brazilian State of Minas Gerais, that it runs in the blood of almost every single citizen – including her own. She has received a Harvard's Planetary Health Alliance award for her socially engaged storytelling.
