DETAILS:

This image was born after I just moved to Brazil, a territory I had a lot to discover about. I started wondering about maps and statistics, all those images that define territories in a quite “authoritarian” way I felt, Brazil in that case, and to think how the perception they gave on a territory was far from what you can experiment while discovering and experimenting it. I decided to use maps that would show statistics and datas about Brazil, and to erase every single geographical or numerical mark. I wanted the way of apprehending the territory through maps and statistics to loose its authority, and to make those images becoming abstract, even poetical. I gathered the now-abstract-images, obtained from geopolitical maps, with poetical photographs of Brazil as I was discovering it. This image was born after a map showing modern slavery in Brazil.
