From the Introduction: With a camera as a strategic instrument for disclosure and interpretation, photographer Valdir Cruz has produced this complex and extended portrait of the Cathedral Basilica de Nossa Senhoro da Luz dos Pinhais, a neo-Gothic structure in Curitiba, in the state of Parana, in southern Brazil. Commemorating the occasion of the cathedral's centennial, these studies evidence the attentiveness of an unaffected pictorialism, a specific clarity of vision, and the high quality of the printed image itself."
