The Singular White (Repetitive) repertoire has the particularity of having as its genesis a white sheet of white photographic paper seen as a creative power. Since this is the preferred reference that allows pure light to be reflected and its capture through the photographic act carried out with a camera in real time, it explores the infinite possibilities of creating luminous compositions. Presentation of some of the series published in the recent book Ph11 José Luís Neto, published by INCM – Imprensa Nacional Casa da Moeda.
