Photographer's Note

Located between the Jequitinhonha and Mucuri Valeys, Padre Paraíso (Father Paradise) is a peaceful town on the road BR-116. The name comes from Father Agostinho Francisco de Mendonça Paraíso, who used to bring indians to his church. In the city there was a lot of exploitation of semiprecious stones, hence the sculpture which can be seen in the picture.
