Photographer's Note

Ouro Preto is one of the colonial cities of the state of Minas Gerais (General Mills) in Brazil. The whole region grew out of the gold mines located here, where the gold extracted was sent to Portugal at the colonial period of Brazil.

At that time, the church had a very strong influence in both Portugal and Brazil. As a result, several churchs were erected in cities such as Ouro Preto, Mariana, Congonhas and Tiradentes.
