Tadeu Vilani – BRAZIL
Rosimeri Aguiar is a descendant of the “quilombolas”, a community of mostly escaped slaves from mines and plantations who occupied territory in the Brazilian hinterland in the 19th century. She is one of the few women who are engaged in shrimp fishing in the Lagoa de Peixe National Park on the coast of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The fishing season starts in the beginning of January and spans until the end of April. During this period, Rosemeri fishes almost every day.
