I never get tired of saying how much I admire Rakes Progress magazine.
It is a well designed and well-curated magazine and, for me, one of the most beautiful magazines I know.
In this edition, I am proudly publishing my visual story about the Brazilian Cerrado, an eco-system that has been systematically devastated to give space to soy and beef production.
You can find my work about the Cerrado in a gallery on my website.
At the end of last year, I was commissioned for a large project for ADM, one of the largest food companies in the world. The work came from London, the client was in the USA and the shoot was in Brazil. I led one of the many teams that worked around the world with the same mission to shoot photos and videos for the company’s image asset library. The idea was to reflect the variety of people, places and foods that ADM works locally in the many countries in which it operates. I coordinated the production, directed the videos and photographed for three days, after one month of production. It was an honour to contribute, showing the colours and people of my country and at the same time working alongside very talented people from all over the world.
Since I first saw Rakesprogress mag in a book shop, it has become my favourite magazine.
From the beginning, I wish I could have my work published in the magazine someday. And now I am more than happy to say that one of my personal works, Re-natura, has just been published in the digital version.
Rakesprogress is a magazine about gardening. But actually, it is much more than that. The magazine is so beautiful, contemporary, artistic and invites you to look outside your windows and electronic screens.
I am very grateful to the editor, Victoria Gaiger, for giving me the opportunity and space in the magazine. It is a pleasure and an honour to be featured in your magazine.
