As I previously announced two days ago, the 9th Photo Exhibition (the 1st took place at USP in São Carlos-SP-Brazil in 2019) of my project and book published in 2021 called RURAIS is already installed in the lobby of the Rectory of the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar), Rod. Washington Luiz, s/n – Monjolinho, São Carlos, SP-Brazil where he will remain until April 24, 2023.
There are 21 black and white photographs of rural workers from different locations in 4 Brazilian states: São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Goiás and Mato Grosso do Sul that I took in the years 2018-2021.
I am immensely grateful to Mrs. Lourdes Moraes, Chief of Staff of the Rectory and Prof. Dr. Pedro Sérgio Fadini, ProRector of Research (ProPq) at UFSCar for the invitation to set up this exhibition, for the warm welcome and for making this wonderful space available at the Rectory.
Thanking Mrs. Lourdes and Prof. Pedro, I am also respectfully thanking all the senior management at UFSCar in São Carlos, a house that was my home for 45 years.
I would be more than happy with the visit of the entire UFSCar community as well as other visitors from the cities of São Carlos and the region!
Visitation will take place from Monday to Friday from 08:00 to 19:00.
In due course, we will disclose the date and time of an opening act for the exhibition and a date/time of a possible visit guided by me.
