Product Description

Fruit of his extensive photographic research, Luiz Braga's eponymous book brings together 80 images captured over more than two decades of pilgrimage through the Amazon region. Whether in processions, popular celebrations or in the simplicity of the caboclo's life, the photographer's gaze brings details and chromatic vibrations present in nowadays idyllic, urban scenes, abundant in the northern culture with which Braga has such intimacy.

The work also presents a list of more than 70 exhibitions held in Brazil and abroad, as well as testimonials from the artist himself. The organization of the edition was carried out by photography theorist Eder Chiodetto and design by visual artist Pinky Wainer.
