The great US photographer William Christenberry (1936-2016) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Christenberry) once said (https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2010/oct/03/myth) -manners-and-memory-review): “I don’t want my work to be thought of in terms of nostalgia. It’s a matter of place and sense of place. I’m not looking back with nostalgia for the past, but for the beauty of time and the passage of time.”
I echo the words of William Christenberry. These are the same reasons that motivate me to take photographs of buildings – many of them old and/or abandoned –, objects and landscapes from the interior of the state of São Paulo and other parts of the interior of Brazil.
