Rural workers: new photographs

I thought of a moment to show some new records from the last photo session of my project on rural workers.

Despite the rather heavy tone of these photos it is necessary to note that these people work happily. Always singing songs and NEVER interrupt their work for any reason.

You need to be physically fit to accompany them during the photo shoot. The terrain is heavy because it is very soft plowed soil and has very deep furrows which makes walking very difficult, especially carrying photographic cameras and a backpack. But, it is a pleasure activity because the dialogues that have with these workers compensates all the hardnesses of the work.

After some good years photographing in different projects I come to the conclusion – as many have already said – that the important thing is not the end, the destiny, but the journey that we have to make towards this end, to this destiny.

I'm an amateur photographer based in the city of São Carlos, São Paulo state, SE Brazil. I used to make photographs since I was about 15-17 years old. My first camera was a Olympus Trip, an analogue camera. Many years after that I switched to several digital cameras. Presently I own a Nikon D500 with a small set of lenses and a Fujifilm X100T 23mm. A few years after my retirement as an university professor, after teaching Environmental Chemistry at the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) for 45 years, I decided to invest money and time dedicating myself more seriously to photography. I´ve taken on-line courses as well as I´ve participated to various photography festival across Brazil. By far, my biggest interest is street photography. And in it, I'm interested in portraits, everyday street scenes and architecture.
