company Muda de Ideia(www.mudadeideia.com) has traveled to more than one
thousand Brazilian municipalities in 25 states, and some other countries to produce
travel guides for the publish house Empresa das Artes.

During the research work on site, its function was hinting at the sensitivity to
understand and record the daily life through the photographs that illustrate the
content. The ceaseless work covering Brazil allowed the equalization of
understanding about the country that "inveterate Brazilian Historian," according to
a great friend, Aerton Paiva of APEL.

Whenever an opportunity, also exercised his "unbiased look" to perform an inspiring
entrepreneurial initiative. Through small actions, encouraged the local community
to articulate and act on your way through the collective benefit.

most peculiar and beautiful is enhanced but also presented the ills and negligence
