Memory and photography

scielo-1Fabiane Ribeiro OliveiraThe study “The esthetics of delicacy in the fields of Minas: memory and photography as a research-intervention strategy”, by Denise Sampaio Gusmão and Solange Jobim Souza, from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, reports on some wider research-intervention that was carried out in a small village in the east of Minas Gerais State, Córrego dos Januários, a community where the descendants of Joaquim Januário de Souza, the person who founded the locality, live. The objective of the work is to show the methodological strategy that, with the use of photography, brings to the surface the theme of memory as a strategic device for constructing an esthetic education of looking, underpinned by dialogue between the various generations.
