Jabuticaba is my first auto fictional book and mixes photography and poetry. Similar to an artist's book or a diary, the publication presents fragments of a journey two friends took through the countryside of Minas Gerais. The work consists of 48 cell phone photographs, 2 whatsapp prints, 10 poems and 2 attachments.

13 x 18cm - 92 pages

In a game of possible combinations and games between image and word, the book ends up revealing my personal look at this journey: the boundaries between love and friendship, real and virtual, old and new, sacred and profane, trivial and sublime, literal and metaphorical. The intimate landscape blends with the geographic landscape of the six cities in Minas Gerais we visited: flora, houses, objects and roads.

The images in this book were taken between December 27th (2018) and January 8th (2019), in Minas Gerais, in the cities of Belo Horizonte, Nova Lima, São Bartolomeu, São João Del Rei, Carrancas and Itaguara.
