Photography is drawing with lights and Caíque fulfills his role with great efficiency, through the aesthetics that refers to impressionist painting. There is an excess of blur in his works, blurred images from memory.

Memory is the ability to store information. And recovered when we try to remember them. The purpose is to save information. The photobook has 23 images and poetry about the sea. "There is a lighthouse, which guides us through life".

Every project in the book addresses the sea, its own and dreamed colors, all oscillations and stops. Most of the photos are abstract, the result of more sensorial research, free from the technical bonds of the devices. Sometimes they seem to be swept away by the winds, sometimes by a rhythmic graphics, when the memories of childhood go back, when the sea was a constant companion.

The artist achieves effects of rare beauty and inventiveness. They are images caused by light deviations, which fall on others causing inaccurate optical effects, resulting in unusual findings. Even with little time as a photographer, Caíque Costa is mature for the job. Endowed with great intuitive power, he faces the image knowing what he will seek.

The sea is a beaten theme, extremely explored, but the artist adds a little of his "I" in the subject, provoking new visual sensations, so that there is an exchange of meanings between the productions and the observer. Each image has several possibilities for interpretation, ranging from the viewer's involvement with the representations and their memories.
