This site is dedicated to the vast spaces of interior lands, their inhabitants, and their flora and fauna. Photography isn’t simply a reproduction of reality. Here, it’s rather the preservation of visual memories portraying the landscape and its occupants. A tribute to the conservation of the cerrado region. All photographs and texts are the work of André Monteiro, except where explicitly noted. The above photo was taken by Flávio Rezende at Emas National Park, Goiás.
