Last Spring my baby brother came to visit me in Canada for the first time. We hadn't seen each other in two years, so it was really nice to spend 3 weeks together. About an year before I had made a backdrop that I was hoping one day to be able to photograph him on it. A couple of years ago I found two full boxes of old music sheet at my mother-in-law's building. They have this Free Table where people leave stuff they don't want anymore and anyone is free to take it. I couldn't believe someone would throw that out. They ranged from the late 1800's to the 60's. Some I donated to the music teacher at my son's school. Some I put aside for my brother to take back with him, and some books, that had the pages falling apart, I made a backdrop, for when I get musicians in front of my camera. Mauricio has been involved with music since his early teens when he started taking piano classes with Mrs. Neide, a piano teacher who lived in our neighborhood. He's teacher and a conductor at a Choir in Sao Paulo.
