The Paranapiacaba Portfolio is a series of photographs of the genre” Street Photography “, produced between 2017 and 2019 in the Village of Paranapiacaba.

My objective in creating this series of photographs was to show the relationship between the people and the environment of the bucolic Village of Paranapiacaba, some photographs in this series can be classified as photographs street minimalists, that is, compositions that highlight lines, shapes, diffused lights, shadows, contrasts and silhouettes. The fundamental in minimalist street photography is the meticulous composition, solitary subjects, silent settings and dramatic lighting that unite to give life to the images.

During the execution of this series of photographs, I developed a planning in relation to the climatic conditions of the Village of Paranapicaba, and decided to photograph only on rainy days and with fog. My purpose was to use diffused light, glare and the reflections caused by the rain, and the fog to isolate and highlight the human element in the compositions.
