Atlântica exhibition is the first of a set of projects developed in Brazil, and which employs as a starting point the first images created about this country. Coincidentally, these are also the first images transported from one place to another, in this case, from Brazil to Europe. Frans Prost, Johann Moritz Rugendas and Jean-Baptiste Debret were among its earliest creators.
Works as Julien Deltil's 19th-century Views of Brazil (Vistas do Brazil) are embryos of the present remote vision and enclose some of the elements that it shares with landscape research field. Namely, how to pictorially reproduce the experience of a place. Wild or uninhabited territories are those to which this question is most pertinent. The Atlantic Forest was the first of a series of visits guided by this idea.
