Photographer's Note

Statue of Jorge Amado, sitting at Vesuvio Bar, in the town of Ilhéus. Although he was born in Itabuna, the writer spent his childhood in Ilhéus, state of Bahia. On the background we can see Jorge Amado's Block, where the house where he lived is today a museum paying tribute to him. Writer of famous novels, such as "Gabriela, Clove and Cinnamon", "Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands", and "Tieta, the Goat Girl", he is one of the few great writers who dedicated himself exclusively to literature, never having worked with something else. He died in 2001, and his ashes were spread on his house's garden. He was one of the greatest idols from Bahia and Brazil.
