“the real is not at the exit or at the arrival but in the middle of the crossing.” (joão guimarães rosa)

This thought is (very) valid for me in photography. The (many) trials (and errors) are (most of the time) more interesting than the end result.

Of course, the end result is always important in photography – otherwise, what would photography be? But, ‘the middle of the road‘, ‘the crossings‘ – the trials and errors, the stories of each photograph which for years and years we tell – are the points that fill us with pleasure.

“One is always in the dark, only in the last light up the room. I say! the real is not at the exit or the arrival! he is available for us is in the middle of the crossing ”. (João Guimarães Rosa in ‘Grande sertão: veredas’)

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.
