A última aventura (The last adventure)

in Transfers

A última aventura reveals the approximately one-month journey that I undertook on the Transamazonic Road on October 2011. Traveling by car along sections of the almost four thousand kilometers of this highway that runs east-west across the northern part of Brazil, I searched for material and symbolic evidence remaining from a pharaonic, utopic, boastful project that had quickly faded into oblivion and abandonment. The outcomes of my travels are static images of empty, unpopulated scenes, where absent dwellers keep the vestiges of grand fantasies.
