Photographer's Note

One of the most degradated spots in the city of Bel駑, Par. Why the heck would i visit a place like this, you might ask. My mother was born and lived part of her life few meters from this place, in the district of Cidade Velha ("Old City" already shown here). Besides, i have kept two big sensations from my first visit to the city, when i was 5: the smell of the city and the wood of a pier, which happens to be further ahead this group of houses, for my surprise.

When I arrived there with my aunt, a man approached us and asked what we were doing there. I responded I was there for personal reasons, a kind of a meeting with my childhood. He smiled and said I should be quick, because it was dangerous to stay there for long.

I did not stay long, and in the meantime I stole 3 images. Prostitutes resting, men smoking, kids playing in a delightful bliss. A place to be revisited.

The colorful Salt Port. Enjoy!
