Showing my city from a street perspective is always an immense challenge.
Recife is my city. A coastal city that is the capital of the state of Pernambuco, northeast region of Brazil. Known a lot for its carnival, culture and beaches, Recife also has a very vibrant urban atmosphere.
Like any Brazilian city, Recife has many social contrasts, the majority of the population has trade in products and services as its main source of income. The people here are very creative, hardworking and go to great lengths to overcome their difficulties.
My photographic series: "In the Streets of Recife" (Nas Ruas do Recife) has already reached its 6 years. It's been 6 years that I've been out in the streets of my city, more specifically in the central region of Recife, photographing and recording everyday scenes in this city, which is one of the largest in Brazil.
I am happy to see that my entire trajectory during this project goes through Blockchain. I remember August 2016, the year I started posting on Steemit and even today (2021) I keep posting here in the Blockchain all my views on my city.
I hope that many years will come and I continue walking and walking through the streets of Recife.
