Role: Photographer, Executive Producer
"Terún" is a photo reportage created during 2018/19, focusing on the 'Marielle Vive' occupation organized by the Movimento Sem Terra (The Landless Movement) in Valinhos/SP. From the occupation's inception to its first-year anniversary, the aim was not only to document the community's evolution but also to explore the prejudices held by people from Valinhos, primarily of Italian descent, against those residing in the occupation. Through the lens, the project sought to uncover the historical amnesia that leads individuals with immigrant family backgrounds to judge new migrants using the same prejudiced arguments their ancestors once faced.
Commissioned by the Virada Sustentável Institute, this work was subsequently exhibited at the 'Virada Sustentável Campinas 2020', the 'Terún Art Gallery' in Turin, and the Espaço de Exposições da Faculdade de Filosofia, Universidade Autônoma de Barcelona. Additionally, it was published as an ethnographic research paper in the Revista Ciências da Sociedade. click here to read it.
