Great news! My photo essay was shortlisted for the Travel Photographer of the Year 2013 in the category Vanishing & Emerging Cultures.
The essay shows the descendents and house of Colonel Paulino (Pernambuco, 1838-1920) who was a very rich and powerful landlord. The history of the Northeast of Brazil was defined by the legendary “Coroneis”, who owned farms the size of European countries and reigned supreme. The photo essay shows the descendents and what is left of the former legendary wealth.
