A personal selection of photographs with their stories.
The state of Pernambuco has a very varied landscape. Arid areas are alternated by rolling fresh-grown sugarcane fields, and palm plantations in the coastal region. When I was on my way from Belo Horizonte to João Pessoa, the capital of the neighboring state of Paraíba, Pernambuco was crossed. The drought had left its traces in the landscape: dry grasslands, with scattered groups of palm trees that are more resistant to drought. Two men rode on their cart through the sun-burnt landscape.
