About the Artist 

Brazilian artist, Luiz Todeschi’s photographs are a celebration of light and movement. A lover of nature, Todeschi spends a great deal of time outdoors, searching for inspiration from the environment. His artistic style is marked by his sensitivity to the play of light and energy of color. Todeschi’s artistic perspective is influenced by his study of indigenous practices and wisdom that promote a deep respect for nature and honor relationships with all living things. Acutely moved by the plight of the indigenous people in his country, Todeschi considers it his mission as an artist to spread the message of peace through his photography.

In “White Egret”, Todeschi captures the moment of an egret taking off for flight. With its soft focus, and high contrast between light and shadow, the piece is elegant and gestural. Todeschi’s intimate treatment of the egret reveals the artist’s deep reverence and emotional connection to his subject. The image has a very painterly quality to it, with large swaths of light and shadow that appear reminiscent of brush strokes. The simplicity and sweeping movement of “White Egret” evokes an overall feeling of both tranquility and grace.
