The Exploratório presents at the Science Photo Gallery The Pencil of Nature, 18 large-format photographs by Coimbra-based photographer Pedro Medeiros.

The Nature Pencil is, according to the author, “a photographic representation of nature’s original forms,” and invites those who see it “to reflect upon sexuality, life, and death, mutation and manipulation, and realize what is ephemeral and what is perennial.”

Nature interpreted and assigned her the artist’s gaze, which she thus shares with other gazes. Because, as Pedro Medeiros says, “nature is all (in constant motion)”, so “we know how to be a part of writing it.”

“Nature is the greatest of books, the world of all possibilities, complete freedom. It is an enduring source of knowledge and inspiration for scientists, photographers, artists and historians. It has no dogma or humility, no tradition or limits,” says Pedro Medeiros. Exactly what the artist shows in this exhibition.
