 Presentation



” A look at the essence of human beings through their images.
Indirectly revealed, I perceive them through what they reflect.”

Ruy Luiz Machado®


State where I was born, Santa Catarina is a scenario full of landscapes and stories very well characterized in its culture. In this photographic and textual project throughout its lands I realize images proposing reflections on traditions, behaviors, influences, significances, similarities and differences, yesterday and today of this people.
It is an independent nonprofit project.
