THIS MIRACLE

Bahia State, Brasil.  (2015 - )

This Miracle is a personal exploration into the human landscape of Brazil’s Bahia State and reflects my evolving understanding of this evocative and poignant place. It offers a private view of a complex people who struggle daily to survive but are sustained by family values and religious practices.  

I was often met there with the gift of warmth, intimacy, and openness. But despite the joy I witnessed, I was equally drawn to the aura of sadness that I felt lurked just beneath the surface.  The pervasive sense of a people who have been forgotten gave me a feeling of coming home.
