The Thirty Valérios – Brazilian ‘Photoshopping’ in 1901

The photographer Valério Vieira (1862-1941), in the beginning of the 20th century, performed a study in photo montages of his own image with many negatives in which he played every role. The result was “Os Trinta Valérios”, his self-portrait from 1901 – which won the silver metal in 1904 at the International Fair of Saint Louis, in the USA.

It seems that Brazilians were ‘photoshopping’ long before anyone else!
