“I am not the same, having seen the moon
shine on the other side of the world.”
– Mary Anne Radmacher

With Brazilian Independence Day around the corner (Sept 7 but in NYC we’re celebrating on Sept 4), it is a great time to share my exhibition at Berimbau again, along with the photos from the first opening reception on July 26 – thanks to the amazing photographer and friend, Fernando Navarro. I’m grinning like a fool in most of them; could not be helped… I was surrounded by family and friends and loving every second of the gathering.

I’d like to have another reception or two before the show closes (happy-hour get togethers), so be sure to follow my photo page on Facebook for the latest announcements (@miriamromaisphotos).

About the series:
Sul do Brasil is a personal journey through southern Brazil, where my family still lives. Even though I lived there as a kid, the series is still a process of discovery for me and a somewhat nostalgic one at that. The images show the southern countryside of Brazil as I criss-crossed my way to visit relatives, bringing up long forgotten memories and making new ones.

Berimbau do Brasil is worth the trip (brazilian food, caipirinhas & art!); it’s located at 43 Carmine Street (bwtween Bedford & Bleeker). Tel: (212) 242-2606
