The huge storm passed in Rio on the night just before this image was
made and you could still see the consequences of this storm in the
dense low cloud formations above the islands off the coast. I was
absolutely struck by the composition the two trees created with the
sea and the islands in the foreground. The islands on the horizon are
the uninhabited Cagarras Islands, which now form the nature reserve of
Monumento Natural das Ilhas Cagarras, created in 2010.

My 'Brazilian Tales and Other Stories' exhibition is currently on at
the Department of Politics and International Relations of Oxford
University (until 30 June, 2013):
50 times more comments in the visitors book, than the current show at Modern Art Oxford!
