ABOUT THIS SERIES - ATLANTIS
Atlantis is Fernanda Rocha's depiction of the sea as it might seem to be in the imagination of someone who has never experienced it. The images are at once surreal, playful, powerful, meditative and foreboding. They embody not only an envisioned “perfect” physical sea, but also the emotional sea inside all of us.
Atlantis is based on a short story from Acapulco 214, written by author Nani Power. The photographs were published alongside the story in Issue 22 of Rattapallax Magazine.
We only print on archival papers and surfaces, including silver halide photographic papers, museum-quality heavyweight rag papers, metal, acrylic, and wood.
Fuji Deep Matte Velvet is a luxurious, velvety smooth, acid-free, archival silver halide photographic paper with a non-reflective surface that creates gorgeous, detailed fine art images with rich, vivid colors that feel both muted and saturated at the same time.
Moab Somerset Museum Rag is an archival 100% cotton heavyweight 300gsm acid-free paper with an ultra-smooth surface and matte finish that produces deep, rich blacks and unparalleled color.
Our metal prints are made by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets, resulting in uniquely durable prints with vibrant colors, brilliant luminescence, and exceptional detail. The ultra-hard scratch-resistant surface is waterproof/weatherproof and can be cleaned easily — just avoid direct sunlight.
Handcrafted in California, our solid wood box frames are made of natural wood with a rich finish and grain that can vary slightly from frame to frame. They are available in black, white and natural basswood.
Fernanda Rocha is a photographic artist who challenges visual perspectives and rules by using graphic elements to flatten and abstract the reality that she sees. These elements are sometimes playful and sometimes disconcerting. Most importantly, they add unexpected depth and meaning to her work.
Fernanda grew up in Brazil and has been based in the United States for the past 20 years. She has lived in London, and spent several months in India and, most recently, Portugal. Most of her professional experience involved the production of photography for magazines, books, newspapers, and advertising. She currently lives in Portland, Oregon.
