this set of old photographs was found in brazil, but it could well be any other country, which has gone through the process of a transformation. in this case it has been the process of forcing local inhabitants to accept foreign values. it's been a dramatic process, which leaves its mark until today, not only in brazil.
in this expression i'm not interested in the reasons of that transformation. i want to imagine the effects and the remains of that fact. i think to what extent were the individuals taken out or literally torn out from their primal lives.
