Artist's Description

The parliament buildings in Brasilia, the capital of Brazil, as I saw them in 1972 during an extensive study tour to North and South America.
Brasilia was then in its early stages of development and construction as planned by the greatest of South American architects " Oscar Niemeyer" . Oscar was then in exile, so I met with the head of the Planning Commission instead.
I was arrested for an hour ( by some fearsome uniformed soldiers with sub-machine guns) for photographing this and other buildings – until I could summon help from the Planning Commissioner.
Incidentally, Oscar Niemeyer died in December 2012 aged 104.
Olympus OM1. Scanned and restored from Kodachrome 64 slides in 2011.
