BAHIA, 2009
My relationship with Brazil was entirely reassessed after experiencing Bahia. I spent four months in Capim Grosso, a small town in the interior northeast. I volunteered as a photography teacher at a local community center. The photographs from this series represent some of the places and people I came to know and love.
