Seven hundred kilometers from the coast of the Colombian continent lies an island. This small and friendly island, full of rhythms and colors, has been influenced by Spanish and English for many years until becoming a property of Colombia. Its inhabitants, who still carry English surnames due to European colonization, always mention it with great pride. The languages spoken by all are: Creole, Spanish and English.
The island's residents live long and peaceful lives within their secular homes, many in incredible conservation status. They are religious (Protestants and Catholics) and attend mass every week always in their best clothes. When they are not in church or at work, they like to watch the island's movement through the porch of their homes, while their children run free and revel in the exuberant beaches that we only have access to in the best of our vacations.
The positive mood of the inhabitants of this small territory surrounded by crystalline waters, quickly captivated me. I decided to photograph all that I was seeing and feeling, but I did not just want a series of 'street photography' as I usually do when I travel, I wanted something more intimate, I wanted to get into their homes. It was when I politely or inconveniently asked to enter, to photograph them and to hear their stories. They would look at me with a smile on their faces and say, "Come in!" They told me about their families, about the origin of their houses, and about the pirates who once lived on the island.
I spent only 4 days on the island and they were amazing days. I experienced a little of the reality of each one of them, the customs, the gastronomy and the feeling of tranquility that only an island can provide.

This photo was taken at the Tucanos Trail in Tapirai / SP (Brazil). The "TT" is my favorite place to photograph birds. That day, I was with two friends, and the weather was rainy. This hummingbird had its favorite perch, and it was in it that I got this photo, the idea of the photo was to show all the beauty of the colors of the hummingbird's iriscidence, together with the drops of water that fall with the rain. For that, I got as close as possible and took several photos, until I got the one that shows the details I wanted.
Hunger comes from the lack of food that affects a large number of people in Brazil and around the world. Despite major economic, social, and technological advances, the lack of food for thousands of people in Brazil continues. This process is a result of income inequality, the lack of money causes about 32 million people to starve, plus 65 million people who do not eat the minimum amount of calories daily, that is, eat poorly.
Extremely high number, given the territorial extension of the country that has great agricultural potential. But this is irrelevant since there is a concentration of land and income. Much of the country's money is in the hands of only 10% of the Brazilian population.
It is hard to understand a country where records of agricultural production are changing steadily over the years, while hunger is part of an alarming number of people. The monoculture aims to export, because a large part of the production is destined to animal nutrition in developed countries.
Even with federal and state social programs the problem of hunger is not solved, the worst is that it is present in small, medium and large cities and also in the countryside, regardless of the region or state of Brazil.
The solution to the question seems distant, involves a series of structural factors that are impregnated in Brazilian society. Providing basic food baskets does not solve the problem, it only postpones it, it must provide conditions for citizens to be able to support themselves through decent work and remuneration.

The Old Nest is part of the essay TESSITURAS DO SERTÃO, inspired by simple figures portrayed in a "rebuilt beauty", investigating the ambience and body textures of the caatinga, its living beings or not. Using photography, make-up and intertextuality, a dialogue between visual and hybrid texts is constructed as a mosaic in the midst of a chromatic and visual adaptation, seeking the genuine, as popular, beliefs, wanderings and manifestations, re-reading the traditional from the application of natural and unconventional elements that become protagonists in the images, as in this case the straw in "The Old Nest" as an essential element for the composition, adding concept to invade human faces and bodies.
In Tessituras we have a conversation between life, death and rebirth, between static and movement, between being and being, breaking and standing, between disbelief and believing. That touches the heart, that brings some feeling, that carries for a moment, for a situation, for a sensation. The possibility of transmitting emotions, desires, loves, pains, thoughts.
An image is what you see and what is around you ...
... she is what is inside
and what's outside
... is what awakens in the other in some sense.
