To understand a place, it’s important to see it with the eyes of the people who knows it best. That’s why we invited amateur photographers from the region to share their favourite pictures with us and show their view of the place and the life in the region, together with a short text about it. Amazing images came to us!

To help us with the difficult mission of judging all these amazing pictures, we invited the photographers: Edgar Kanaykõ, Julio Magalhães, Magno Barros, Nubia Suriane and Olinda Yawar Wanderley. Independently, each one of them gave points to the received pictures connected with Pará em Maranhão.

We invite you now to see the 12 pictures with the most points according to the judges, and the names and texts of each one of the photographers.

“My vision is important and should reach people all over the world because through these images you can feel the peace and calmness, they convey showing a bit of the Para interior routine.”

Sebastião Netto – MELANINAFETO

“I offer photographic whispers so that in art I can shout: Corpas! So that the world can hear and drink in still little-known sources, from deep rooted places. Images to echo voices, because my voice is not only mine, it is of others, that together we will decentralize the voices. Without creating expectations in single centers where only there, our voices would be able to create. May our voices echo where they are, in their entirety and from the roots, because the voices are our bodies and discourses creating places, thus, I propose images in which our voices project not only possible worlds, but affirm worlds that already exist since the meeting of Pará and Maranhão. Voices-chorus. Voice-chorus. Voices that whisper and turn into screams.”

Rodrigo Silva

“I come to show places and wonderful views. Nature is something incredible that regenerates even with evil that humans do. Nature show in its beauty and its phenomena, nature is the essence and characteristic properties of each being.”

Adenilson Ferreira

“The way of looking at the world is individual, but in a way that this individual look can be shared with the world.

The photos represent the Maraba culture, mainly the river dwellers, who were the precursors of the city of Marabá.”

Edu Chaves

“A Portal opens on the Tapajós River, in Santarém, Pará, but to cross it, a change of consciousness is necessary for the maintenance of a river and an entire ecosystem that is among the 10 most threatened on the planet. This vision must reach people all over the world because, according to studies, there are currently 42 dams planned in the Tapajós River basin, threatening species such as porpoises, giant otters, anteaters and jaguars, as well as indigenous and riverine communities that depend on fishing and its natural cycles of floods and ebb tides to grow their food. This image is important for more and more people to go through the Portal and join in the struggle against the dams and in defence of the Tapajós and other watersheds threatened in their sociobiodiversity by this obsolete and destructive mode of energy generation.
