Édipo

A few months ago, I finally decided to give the go ahead to a plan for a small road trip to photograph some landscape in Brazil´s semi-arid in the northeastern part of the country. I began using a couple of my little geolocation apps (fancy name for the hook-up apps) to start chatting with people from the region I intended to visit. That´s how I got in touch with Édipo, a professional tattoo artist that welcomed me and my ideas in his hometown, from where I was based on the trips to the region.

One of those trips was to that huge stone arch from this post. By one of the cliffs right beside the stone arch I made a few pictures of the vegetation found in the area. And here´s Edipo and his tattoos, in the middle of it all.

Uns meses atrás eu finalmente decidi levar adiante o plano de uma viagem pra fotografar umas paisagens no semiárido nordestino. Eu comecei a usar uns dos meus aplicativos de geolocalização (nome chique dos “apps de pegação”) pra começar a conversar com pessoas da região que eu pretendia visitar. Foi assim que eu conheci Édipo, um tatuador que me recebeu junto com minhas idéias na sua cidade, de onde eu me baseei pras viagens na região.

Uma dessas viagens foi pra imensa Pedra Furada desse post. Juntinho de um dos abismos ao lado do arco de pedra eu fiz umas fotos da vegetação do local. E aqui está Édipo, junto com suas tatuagens, no meio disso tudo.
