TALKING T TO PAOLO
AS PART of this year’s ‘ Brazil Meets Bray’, Tres Brazilian Cultural Centre will present ‘In Conversation’ with Brazilian news cameraman and passionate photographer Paulo Pimentel on Saturday, August 25, at 1.15 p.m.
Paulo will present his powerful body of work taken during a trip to Pernambuco and Alagoas in the northeast of Brazil in 1987. Real, raw portraits depict rural Brazil’s destitute workforce in the sugarcane plantations, half enslaved by the ‘usineiros’ (the sugarcane plantation owners), who worked and lived without ever receiving proper wages. Tickets cost €6 from mermaidartscentre.ie.
