ojo blanco is Lester Weiss. He is a photographic artist based in Brazil with a remarkable eye for combining intricate layers of reality and surface tensions. His images often create one poetic whole from individual reflections, distortions and distressed fragments. The viewer sees a non-literal composition with interest across the entire visual field.
