Fotografias por Minas | COVID19 Relief

Jul 2, 2020
For the past 2 months I have been working with other photographers organizing and putting together this COVID19 relief fundraiser for my home state of Minas Gerais, Brazil.

More than 400 photographers came together, lending their eyes in the form of photographs to help those who need it the most in times of a pandemic. Until July 3rd they are selling fine art photographs for less than $30, and all the proceedings will be destined to COVID19 relief in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Among the institutions to be helped 2 indigenous tribes, 3 quilombolas communities, 1 geraizeira  traditional community, 2 nursing homes, and 1 animal shelter.


Please help if you can!


Durante los últimos 2 meses, he estado trabajando con otros fotógrafos organizando esta venta de fotografías para  recaudar fondos para ayudar personas impactadas por COVID19 en estado natal de Minas Gerais, Brasil.

Más de 400 fotógrafos se reunieron cediendo a sus miradas en forma de fotografías para ayudar a quienes más lo necesitan en tiempos de pandemia. Hasta el 3 de julio están vendiendo fotografías por menos de 30 dólares. Todos lo recaudado se destinará a entidades afectadas por COVID19 en Minas Gerais, Brasil. Entre las instituciones que recibirán ayuda están 2 comunidades indígenas, 3 comunidades quilombolas, 1 comunidad tradicional geraizeira, 2 hogares de ancianos y 1 refugio de animales.
