The Culture House of Paraty is a space that presents the history and life of the coastal town of Paraty, with rich historical heritage for its cultural and artistic events. The house was made possible through a partnership between the Electronuclear, Globo TV, the City Hall of Paraty, Votorantim Group, the Roberto Marinho Foundation and with support from Springer Carrier.
The Culture House have permanent and temporary expositions. In this day as we can see in the photo was occurring a exhibition about Madame Curie.
Many of the historical archives about the house were lost, but it is believed that it was founded in 1754 and due to the number of doors it was probably a warehouse in the past. In 1791 the house was reformed and details were added between 1860 and 1874.
In 1833 the Masons founded in Paraty The Store Union & Beauty. Among the founders found itself the doctor José Joaquim Pereira de Souza. Souza family members were demonstrably linked to the HOuse and the influence of Masons characters is accentuated, as we see till today.
This was a very difficult photo to do (as many other at Paraty this day) since the light was very strong and the shades were very dark against the white façades.

you chose a very effective point of view for your presentation offering two strong and attractive perspectives and an accurate description of the building and its location. Clarity is excellent and I think you've turned the lighting challenge to your favour exalting the marvellous vivid colours and creating very graphical and atmospheric contrasts. It's so interesting to feel the contrast in the atmosphere (in the sunlight and in the shade) in one capture. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Gosto em especial do trabalho com a luminosidade (que estava forte e contrastante naquele momento), com as cores e a composição!

I love the effects of the light on this, it makes the building and its rich colours very bold and eyecatching. Its a fine building, and a great conversion if it was a warehouse! Even though the style of the building looks old, its condition looks superb. This seems to be a very well loved place.
The adition of the line of flags on the right is really cool, it adds depth and movement to the scene making it easier to imagine being here!

Hi Andre - you caught this in really nice light that illuminates the bright colors well. The yellow corner edges in particular are beautiful, and I like how you've framed this with the flags running up to the corner of the frame. Thanks!

Um magnifico céu azul nesse dia e um belo exemplo de arquitectura colonial. O azul e o vermelho destacam-se bem no edificio branco. Até as bandeirinhas dão graça à rua. Gosto do pov!

gostei do efeito destes estandartes vermelhos que quebram um pouco da monotonia de brancos e azuis. muito bom este ângulo que mostra toda a beleza do casarão colonial. gostei também do azulão do céu; um lindo trabalho.
