> Between Faith and Fever

There's a dividing line between religiosity and fanatism? How the "pilgrimages", a popular phenomenon in Brazil, are transformed into catharsis instruments of a forgotten people?
The essay "Between Faith and Fever", of the Brazilian Guy Veloso, shows the frantic search for the sacred in several religious manifestations in deep countryside. The project searchs to unmask as the tenuous dividing line between the religiosity and fanatism is faced naturally in Brazil. Show the necessity of outwardly of faith; as if to penitents was not enough "to please" the saints, but also, to show the society their beliefs and their vote.
"Between Faith and Fever" is about an artistic and antropological study at the same time. A true "archaeology of images" of a forgotten country. A great cauldron of symbols that it's called Brazil. [>]

> Project EPABI

This project is about a serie of portraits taken, during the current school year, to students of the Professional School of Arts from Beira Interior (EPABI), in Covilhã, Portugal.
These are portraits done where they normally study and have classes, with (or without) their respective instruments. Although the conditions are not the best, from this school leave pupils every year, immediately accepted by High Schools of Music from the country and abroad. Therefore here are portraited, perhaps, some of the future best Portuguese musicians.
The Author teaches in this School, since several years, the discipline of Transversal Flute. [>]
