Baldemar Fierro developed his discerning eye by photographing some of the most gorgeous natural landscapes and environments on earth. However, his photographic approach is rooted in the belief that anything has the potential to be beautiful – no matter how quotidian it may be. It was one of the most common and symbolic Portuguese images that caught Baldemar’s eye during his visit to Portugal earlier this year – the Azulejo. Azulejos are elaborately painted decorative tiles that adorn surfaces as varied as churches to palace walls to park benches. While of Moorish origin, the Azulejo has been used more imaginatively and consistently in Portugal than in any other place over time. For this scarf, Baldemar captured photographic images of particularly beautiful blue and white tiles (the most prevalent Azulejo color combination) and wove them into a fresh, airy and sophisticated design.
