Braselino

Braselino is 13 years old. He and his 15-year-old sister went to live with their grandmother when their father died in 2005; his mother died when he was very young, also from AIDS. Braselino’s grandmother works on a farm to support herself and her grandchildren. The family also receives assistance from Reencontro, who provide food, clothes, and school supplies.

Braselino wants to be a photographer and had an interest in photography before participating in The House Is Small. He enjoyed taking photographs and making new friends with the Mozambican photographers and The House Is Small project team. When asked what he hopes to tell the world through his pictures, he says, "I would like the world to see the love that I have for my grandmother and the life we share together."

Braselino's captures are incredible. Compostion and lighting are just fantastic. I am sure I will have these images flash before my eyes tomorrow and feel it neccesary to tell others of his stuggles to help bring awareness. best of luck to you Braselino.

Sou brasileiro, portanto de lingua porguêsa, mas o que vale é a expressão como solidário ao que vocês estão realizando. Um trabalho que dignifica pessoas, mesmo diante dos piores desafios. Parabéns!
