Thanks to the several generous donations to my crowdfunding campaign I was able to realize my book project  “Dispatch to Origin”!

For this project, I photographed Brazilians living in Amsterdam who had been undocumented for a certain period of time, due to different reasons.
Since all of them suffered from extreme homesickness, I decided to take the negatives to Brazil with me and, as a symbolic gesture perform an Afro-Brazilian-inspired ritual with them.
The results of the ritual are the 40 images in the book (from which 15 are portraits and 25 are abstract ones- the details from the negatives) spread over 72 pages, including an essay by Sebastian Rypson in English, Dutch and Portuguese.
Only 150 copies have been printed and all of them are numbered and signed.

Thanks again for all the kind and generous donations!

This project was made possible by the generous support from The Mondriaan Fund.
