The making of a desert
Como se faz um deserto (2013)

Como se faz um deserto (The Making of a Desert) is a project that involves a series of photographs and a publication bringing together all documents and texts that were relevant in the work process. The search for understanding what would define Brazil’s hinterlands (sertões) defined much of this research, going through cartographic, historical, linguistic terms, in addition to a trip through the region.

The whole project was thought of as a documentation of the work process, shown through photographs and texts that were produced during and after the trip through the sertões region.
