Role: executive producer
Over a span of four decades, Luiz Antônio Castro de Jesus, originally from Bahia and recognized as an honorary citizen of Campinas since 1999, single-handedly established the Babá Toloji Cultural Institute. Today, it proudly houses one of Brazil's most extensive collections of African art. The collection, consisting of approximately 10,000 artifacts—including sculptures, paintings, totems, vases, ornaments, and necklaces—has been primarily sourced from various African countries, including Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Benin, Ghana, Mali, Gabon, and more.
Between 2015 and 2018, we had the privilege of photographing this impressive collection and documenting the institute's numerous events. Additionally, we assumed the role of executive production for the institute, coordinating a variety of activities such as workshops, courses, and guided tours to showcase the rich cultural heritage preserved within the collection.
