Traditional Peoples of Cerrado
The "Traditional Peoples of Cerrado" is a personal project that aims to register the people and daily life of the several traditional peoples that inhabit the Cerrado, a vast savanna area in the Brazilian hinterland.
For those who do not know, traditional people are people who occupy a region historically and have their habits, traditions and beliefs transmitted orally, from generation to generation. Some of them, like the quilombolas (relatives of ancient runaway slaves) and indigenous natives, have occupied the region for hundreds of years.
And just like the Cerrado, these communities are also being threatened in the maintenance of their historical cultural attributes. As the land occupation by large farms and agricultural enterprises advances, these people are being oucasted from the areas of their traditional settlements.
Eduardo Moreira BRAZIL
Edu Moreira is passionate about photography, especially landscapes.
He began as self-taught in 2003. Since then, he begun to focus seriously on developing his photography skills, seeking to improve his technique and challenging himself to raise the quality of his photos at every opportunity.
His inspiration draws on the great masters of landscape photography, especially Ansel Adams, Eliot Porter and Edward Weston. Among contemporary photographers, Galen Rowell, Michael Frye, Marc Adamus, as well as the Brazilians Sebastião Salgado and Araquém Alcântara, are instruments of studies in search of photos that fascinate by their beauty. Above all they can convey the magic, the beauty and the mystery of images around the world.
Some photographers have a uniform and recognizable style. Edu Moreira is not one of them. His images are not restricted to landscape photography, depicting a wide variety of subjects.
One of his areas of great interest is abstract photography, where his imaginative eyes capture the beauty of lines and geometric forms present in our daily life that a common observer can not perceive.
In 2014 and 2015, he lived in Miami, having the opportunity to improve his technique with some great American photographers like John Batdorff, Kurt Budliger and Robert Chaplin.
He has participated in several individual and collective exhibitions. In January 2017, he received 3 Honorable Mentions at the 2016 Monochrome Awards, competing with 8121 photos from 81 countries.
As a travel lover, Edu had visited more than 50 countries. Recently he photographed in Patagonia, Morocco, Iceland, Tanzania and several other countries. For him, "photography is an excellent excuse to set foot on the road"!
