‘Moriyamando’ is a new series of photographs that I have been working on for the past few days. The name of the series is a pun that I make (and that only makes sense in the Portuguese language) with the name of the great Japanese photographer, Daido Moriyama, whom I admire and draw inspiration from in my street photography.

The name of the series could also be ‘Moriyamanas’, as for example and similarly to the ‘Bachianas Brasileiras’ by the great Brazilian composer Villa-Lobos.

‘Brazilian Bachianas’ is a series of nine compositions by Heitor Villa-Lobos written in 1922. In this set, written for different formations, Villa-Lobos merged Brazilian folk material with pre-classical forms in the style of Bach, intending to build a Brazilian version of the Brandenburg concerts (Wikipedia).

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.
