The photographic exhibition is commemorating the 270 years of the Azorean settlement in Santa Catarina that we celebrated in the year 2018. It was a great project of the Portuguese Crown for the mass transfer of people from the Azores archipelago to occupy South Brazil, the first emigrants arrived in Ilha de Santa Catarina, village of Nossa Senhora Desterro on January 6, 1748, after having embarked on a trip for about three months.
This exhibition is the result of a photographic marathon called “Gestures and People in the Carnival Terceirense” that took place in the carnival of the Azores and was organized by the Presidency of the Regional Government of the Azores through the Regional Directorate of the Communities. The proposal was to photograph the Carnival of Terceira Island in the Azores, which is an atypical thing. Photographers from Brazil, Canada and the United States were invited to participate in this project, where we find very strong Azorean emigration roots. From Brazil were photographers from Rio de Janeiro, from Rio Grande do Sul and the third was Joi Cletison representing Santa Catarina.
