[new topographics of são paulo state, brasil]

I understand that these photos show the tremendous strength that the sugar and alcohol (ethanol) industry has in Brazil, especially in the interior of the state of São Paulo.


But – it seems to me that there is always a but or more than one – it is a type of industrial activity that, although it has improved a lot in terms of negative environmental impact in recent decades, still causes environmental impacts and many of them are still unknown and difficult to be properly evaluated.


But, in life, we often look at certain issues from the lyrical side and I want to focus my attention on this aspect of what I do and see these photos that I take, even though I can’t get rid of the memory of the aforementioned social and environmental impacts.

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.
