SURVIVORS OF BRAZIL PROJECT/PHOTOGRAPHY

"HAPPY IS THE MAN WHO FOUND CONTENTMENT IN THE LIGHT OF THE SUN "

SINCE I STARTED MY ARTISTIC CAREER ALWAYS LONGED FOR EXPLORE THEMES THAT FOCUSED ON REALITY AND FORMS STYLE, VALUING THE SOCIAL CONVIVIALITY OF THE HUMAN BEING, CONTEXTUALIZING IT AND SEEKING TO RAISE AWARENESS THROUGH THE DRAWING AND PHOTOGRAPHY.

LATELY I'VE BEEN DEDICATED TO PHOTOGRAPH COPYRIGHT ISSUES THAT SHOW THE DISCREPANCY AND PREJUDICE IN RELATION TO MARGINALIZED WORK, FOR EXAMPLE, COLLECTORS OF RECYCLED MATERIAL, GARBAGE COLLECTORS, COLLECTORS OF ORANGE, SUGAR CANE CUTTERS AND MANY OTHER CLASSES LABOR LAW ALL THIS DISCREPANCY IS PAINTED IN A SCENARIO CORRUPTION AND SAVAGERY PRODUCED BY THE GOVERNMENT BRAZILIAN, WHERE DISLOYALTY TO THE NATION AND DISRESPECT ARE DUMPED ALL THE TIME ABOUT NATION SINCE EARLY TIMES.

I DECIDED TO WORK WITH THE SURVIVORS OF BRAZIL THEME BECAUSE I BELONG TO THE WEAKEST OF SOCIETY WRONGED AND LEAST FAVORED. I GREW UP In the GREATEST CITY in the WORLD, WHICH HOUSES OVER 32 MILLION PEOPLE CONCENTRATED in 8.5 THOUSAND SQUARE KILOMETERS of URBAN AREA: THE VAST CONCRETE JUNGLE OF BRAZIL, THE CITY OF SÃO PAULO. I KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO LIVE ON THE EDGE AND NEED OF EDUCATION AND PUBLIC HEALTH, LIVE IN THE MIDST OF PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT REMEMBERED AND YES DISREGARDED BY THE GOVERNMENTAL SYSTEM. HERE THOUSANDS OF WORKERS LIVE IN A STATE OF CALAMITY CLAIMING TO FIND A SHADOW UNDER THE SUN OF THE EMBEZZLEMENT OF PUBLIC COFFERS AND CORRUPTION OF A GOVERNMENT THAT HAS NO SHAME AND NO MERCY, PERFORMING MASTERFULLY THE PRIMER OF A RUTHLESS USURPER.

I'M MORE OF A MAN WHO STILL STRUGGLE TO LIVE IN THE WORLD OF TRUTH.

WE CAN OBSERVE IN A CONSTRUCTION OF A MALL OR A BIG BUILDING, FOR EXAMPLE, THAT THE CREDITS MORE RECOVERED ARE FOR MODELING, ENGINEERS AND ARCHITECTS. HOWEVER, THE CLAIMS OF THE BRUTE LABOR OF WORKERS WHO GAVE THEIR SWEAT AND BUILT WITH HIS OWN HANDS THE ENTIRE BUILDING, DOES NOT HAVE THE SAME IMPORTANCE. THE FAIR WOULD BE THAT THEY WERE ALL COVERED IN THE SAME WAY, SINCE ONE NEEDS THE OTHER TO CARRY OUT THE WORK. THIS THEME AIMS TO PORTRAY THE DAILY LIFE OF PEOPLE LIVING IN VERY HOSTILE WORKING CONDITIONS AND SUB-HUMAN, NOT ONLY IN THE CITY OF SÃO PAULO WHERE I LIVE, BUT ALSO IN VARIOUS PLACES OF BRAZIL, USING PHOTOGRAPHY TO DOCUMENT A REALITY SUBMERGED IN THE PREJUDICE AND DISCRIMINATION, THAT IS REFLECTED IN A TROUBLED IMAGE, BUT THAT ON THAT REALITY THE SOCIETY CAN STILL FIND DIGNITY AND RESPECT.

I BELIEVE THAT WE LIVE IN A RUTHLESS AND WITHOUT MERCY, WITH CITIZENS WHO HAVE THE ARROGANCE TO BE RUTHLESS WITH THOSE LESS FORTUNATE, THAT HAVE THE SAME RIGHT, RESPECT AND EQUALITY. ALL WORKER NO MATTER THE JOB, SHOULD BE TREATED WITH DIGNITY AND RESPECT. THIS ISN'T ABOUT BEING A MARXIST, AND A LAW, AND OF RESPECT FOR OUR NEXT AS A CITIZEN.

ONE OF THE GREATEST CHALLENGES OF HUMANITY IS TO LIVE UNDER THE LIGHT OF TRUTH.
