O Tempo Não Para, Time Does Not Stop, is a long-term, ongoing photography project in Brazil. Since 2011, I have returned to families throughout Bahia exploring customs and relationships within their communities. Layering daily life and rituals to create intimate, poetic portraits that reflect their unwavering strength and character.
I am drawn to the quiet moments, traditions and the religions that bind them together. Traveling along the back roads, returning to families year after year, observing the dynamics of change and all that does not. Life moves along and my visits are often filled with a reality I hadn’t expected. This edit brings together moments from 2011 through my last visit in 2019, with each edit I try to tell a short story of time. Now, nearing on 3 years since my last visit and only receiving small updates from the girls, 2023 will be an emotional return.
