The photo art project titled Quase-Cinema by Lucas Simoes plays with the idea of motion. Enamored with films by Andrey Tarkovsky and Wim Wenders because of the simplicity of their images and the way they are able to shift a camera within their chosen scenery while imbuing a sense of continuity between scenes, the Brazilian artist has decided to translate that into the art of photography.

To achieve this, each piece in Quase-Cinema by Lucas Simoes is woven in such a way as to form a wave. Made up of multiple photographs that have been bent and strategically placed to create the optimal illusion of motion, they are then fixed onto a support made of wood and cloth.
