Photographer's Note

Around 40 years ago northern-Paraná was covered with big and small farms of coffee, the largest ones had small villages, named (Colônia), where the workmen and their families lived. In 1975, after the big and terrible "black frost" all those plantations were killed by the ice and most of these old rural villages were demolished and millions of people in my region moved to the big towns or to other states of Brazil. When we visited this farm we were surprised because it had a traditional "colônia" like in the past yet and with people living there, we came back to the past watching the place. Here we can see the small chapel of the village, surrounded by North-American pine trees (pinus ellioti).

Há cerca de 40 anos o norte paranaense era coberto com milhares de pequenas e grandes plantações de café, as maiores possuíam pequenas vilas rurais (as colônias)onde os trabalhadores e suas famílias viviam. Depois da "geada negra" de 1975 todas as plantações foram destruídas pelo gelo, as colônias foram demolidas e milhões de pessoas saíram da zona rural paranaense e se mudaram para as grandes cidades ou para outros estados do Brasil. Quando visitamos esta fazenda nos surpreendemos com o fato dela ainda possuir uma colônia, isso nos enviou de volta ao passado. Vemos aqui a capela da colônia , rodeada de pinheiros norte-americanos (pinus ellioti).
