THIS MIRACLE

Bahia State, Brasil.  (2015 - )

This Miracle is a personal exploration into the human landscape of Brasil’s Bahia State. It reflects my evolving understanding of this evocative and poignant place and offers a private view of a complex people who struggle daily to survive and are sustained by core family values and religious practices. The glimpses of joy I witness there contrast sharply with the stark sense of abandonment I perceive lurking just beneath the surface. A pervasive mood of sadness, at having been forgotten, draws me, an outsider, in and fills me with the paradoxical feeling of coming home.
