About the exhibition, the artist tells us that "is a photographic project about the place where I grew up – Sepetiba, in the West zone of Rio de Janeiro, a small fishing community, with a fairly prosperous past, It is now in advanced environmental degradation process, which led the region to years of ostracism ", comments on the artist.
With this work, Valda Nogueira, Returns to the place where it grew to recognize the territory with all its peculiarities – the spirituality, the fish, the old, women, the nature – creating a list whose elements draw a narrative and poetic at the same time committed to the construction of a memory.
