White Noise by António Júlio Duarte

Condition report

Fine condition

António Júlio Duarte has been photographing casino’s lobbies in Macau for the last 10 years.

Shot at night, with a medium format camera and a flash, often in jet lag, the lobbies became Duarte’s personal territory. The absurd luxury of the places combined with the strangeness of the objects, and the absence of human presence, creates a strong dreamlike feeling. We are led through a labyrinth, as if floating.

This work is both an important document about the little seen reality of Casino’s in Macau today, and a very personal reflection about East and West, about how to relate to the world through photography.
