>>[children from the Amazon]<<

I consider myself privileged in life and for several reasons, one of them being that as a professor and researcher in the environmental area at the university, I had almost countless chances to travel and discover the Brazilian Amazon region for several decades.

The photos I share today are from a series I called “Children of the Amazon” and were taken on analog (color slides or negatives) several decades ago. But here they are: alive as never before.

I have many questions that fill my mind: where and how are these “children”? Will they still live in the same places? Were they married or not? How many children will they have had? Will they be happy people? For me I only have the memories of those happy days for me and those beautiful and happy children…

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.
