Photograph of a photograph, colored past: Austin, Rio de Janeiro, 2011
Austin, a small town in the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro, became the metaphor of a displaced identity. This project is an investigation of the dialectics of memory and amnesia. In addition to a subjective and poetic search, the project aims to contribute in the building of a shared memory for a place loosing its historical references amid an aggressive capitalist development dynamic.
