“The landscape is not, in essence, made to look at, but the insertion of man in the world, the place of a struggle for life, a manifestation of his being with others, the basis of his social being”. (Dardel, E., 2011. Man and the earth: nature and geographical reality. Translation Werther Holzer. São Paulo, SP. Perspective.)
As much as industrial development has brought improvements in Humanity’s standard of living worldwide, we cannot forget that Man leaves his tracks in the immense and irreversible transformations and environmental damage inflicted on Nature, Urban and Rural Landscapes. The portraits of these landscapes are authentic testimonies of the historical and difficult coexistence of man with the Earth.
