A colorful free market

In Brazil, usually we have what we call free markets in almost all districts of almost every city in the country. They are free markets of greens, vegetables, spices, eggs, cheeses ... Indeed, almost everything you find in supermarkets ... but with the charm of color, smell and taste the most varied and picturesque sellers...

No Brasil, costumamos ter o que chamamos de feira livre em quase todos os bairros de quase todas as cidades do país. São mercados livres de verduras, legumes, especiarias, ovos, queijos... Na verdade, quase tudo o que encontramos nos supermercados ... mas com o charme das cores, odores e sabores os mais variados e seus vendedores pitorescos.


  1. We also have "ferias libres" in Chile, and with the economic crisis going on, it has turned out to be the best place to get cheap and good fruits and vegetables. Do sellers there also yell a lot and compliment anyone?

  2. Very colourful!

    Look at the seller in the first photo:) He looks hmm... a little bit nervous. Are you OK?:)


  3. Adoro feira livre. A alegria das cores é um acontecimento ímpar. Belas e refrescantes fotos.


Thanks for your comment!

We walk by the streets of our city and very often we don’t realize its images, which are there and which suddenly are not any more.

To photograph and glance is to guard images, impressions. It is also to re-discover the space where we live, our imaginary and scenario of our lives.

Our glance is not enough. It is necessary that others look what we see.

Andamos pelas ruas de nossa cidade e muitas vezes não percebemos suas imagens, que estão ali e que de repente não estão mais.

Fotografar e olhar é guardar imagens, impressões. É também redescobrir o espaço em que vivemos, nosso imaginário e cenário de nossas vidas.

Nosso olhar não basta. É preciso que outros olhem o que vemos.

Who see me?

To whom?
