Together and mixed
The project was conceived and
materialized by the Higher Education Technique of the Psychology and Orientation Service of the School
And Secondary School Tomás de Borba, Joana Costa, who invited me to photograph students from the
Special Education of this school (which happen to be also my students), in partnership with the singer
Rubeshe Santos, DL Jay. In this project, during the construction of a Video Clip, I was able to capture
several emotions of students with disabilities in interaction with other "normal" students,
teachers, educational assistants, and the elderly population residing in the Santa Casa da
Mercy of Angra do Heroísmo.
