STUDIES ON THE DIGNITY OF THE HUMAN PERSON
Fragments of the current political-socioeconomic scenario.

Studies on the Dignity of the Human Person * shows a subject cropping from the first stage of this imagistic investigation.

On my daily walk through the region where I live - Paulista Avenue in Centre of São Paulo, I raise awareness about: it is possible to literally stumble at every moment across individuals thrown alongside the sidewalks. Stripped of any human dignity, and as if they were not there, despised and repelled by thousands of bypassers - otherwise their own neighbors. And ignored by the State - the most responsible for them.
In this artistic process, I wish to "withdraw them" from the streets, to reveal and confer upon them some human dignity; although fragmented. As a relief to my soul, I find in the last image of each polyptych a fraction of their bodies that seems to retain dignity. I seek, thus, to reconnect them with their human essence, and their equals. And vice versa.

* Dignity of the human person is a term used by the Federal Constitution, and constitutes one of the foundations of the Democratic State of Law, inherent to the Federative Republic of Brazil. Its purpose, as a fundamental principle, is to ensure to man a minimum of rights that must be respected by the society and by the public power, in order to preserve the value of the human being.
