Release of my first photobook called “RURAIS” (rural workers from Brazil)

RURAIS is a book of black and white photographs of rural workers in Brazil published by Editora Origin which was curated by Juan Esteves and an exceptional graphic design by Roberto Weigand.

The book features 98 photographs (148 pages – 25cm high x 23cm wide) of various rural workers from four Brazilian states in their work environments and was beautifully printed in full black + yellow Pantone off set system on Masterblank 270g/m2 paper (front of laminated cover) and the inside in Munken Lyns Rough 120g/m2 paper with a print run of 500 by Gráfica e Editora Ipsis in September 2021.

Several of the photographs are accompanied by original chronicles written by me as a narrative about rural life in Brazil that also reflect my experience in the various photo sessions with rural workers portrayed in the book throughout the interior of the states of São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Goiás and Mato Grosso do Sul, as well as my childhood and adolescence memories lived in a rural area in the state of São Paulo.

The book will be released at the Casa de Cultura Odisseia (Al. Ministro Rocha Azevedo, 463 SÃO PAULO, SP) on 10/23/2021 from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm, when some photographs of my project will also be exhibited till 11/17/2021. Book and photos will be for sale locally, as well as being purchased directly from me.

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.
