Product Description

The book Trancoso, João Farkas brings together about 80 selected color photographs in the middle of the collection of more than 15 thousand images produced by João Farkas in this city of the south coast of Bahia during almost three decades.

The records of festivals, fishing, houses, landscapes and, especially, of the inhabitants of Trancoso indicate not the look of a photographer who observes what is exotic to him, but the perspective of someone who knows the day to day of the inhabitants, their customs and Particularities.

In fact, Farkas not only frequented the region for several years, but also kept a house in Trancoso, becoming a friend of the residents and being accepted as a local, which allowed him to freely photograph the daily life of the city. The book also includes texts by the photographer and journalist Walter Firmo and the anthropologist and poet Antonio Risério.
