Loongokuboma is a Maasai village inside the Ngorongoro conservation area in Tanzania. The village has a population of 150 people including 45 children. The kids between 4 and 7 years goes to the village school, and the ones between 8 and 14 goes to the primary school in another village located 10km away from Loongokuboma. Yes, if you are calculating the distance they walk per day, 5 days a week, your mathematics still good, they walk 20km per day, 100km per week. After the primary school with 14 to 15 years they start a very hard training before they become a real MAASAI WARRIOR. Kimai-Laizer is the chief who takes care of the whole village. He is the son of the previous chief.

I am delighted with the positive feedback I have received from the group at the end of our trip. It was quite an experience to listen all of them telling their stories, talking about their fears, satisfaction and experience during the 10 days we have spent together. It was definitely an amazing expedition.
What a such good moments we have had in this village with all these kids playing around our group. By having the idea to take a selfie, we learned that they were doing this for the first time in their lives, and I was very happy to bring such a good fun to these kids in Mto Wa Mbu, Tanzania.
A big male resting in the Serengeti plains, probably waiting the sun to go down and start what they normally do best, hunting. We all know that lioness normally does the hard job, but without protection of a big male, the pride would not survive.

My passion with Africa, their countries and the wildlife that inhabits the continent began more than 40 years ago. 2011 to date were covered just over 8000 kilometers in a total of 70 days, during which I had the opportunity to portray countries such as South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya and Tanzania. In my next expedition that will take place in March 2015, I will return to Tanzania to portray the end of the wildebeest migration going up towards Kenya.
With the technical preparation of accumulation, study, experience and advanced equipment, the sixth expedition promises a result even more artistic and sensitive, striking work factors and which are observed by the team of Buriti - publisher operating in the printing and distribution market of prints and limited edition art photographs over twenty years, also responsible for printing and distribution of my work.
After a few years of hard work in the pursuit of excellence for the final product, the publisher chose the size 21 x 29.7 cm to produce this collection of 21 images, which will be available from 02/03/15 in two Bookstores in Sao Paulo: Livraria Cultura Arts and Culture Gallery, both on the ground floor (Avenida Paulista, 2073) and Livraria Gaudí , inside the Instituto Cultural Tomie Ohtake (Avenida Brigadeiro Faria Lima, 201.).
The editions are printed with natural pigment ink on paper Canson Infinity Rag Photographique, 310 g / m2, 100% cotton and neutral pH. Each copy is signed and numbered by the author. The editions are limited to 75 copies and follow the mat and the authenticity certificate. Final size with mat: 29 x 37 cm.

This is my new class of 2015, great kids with a lot of appetite to learn and learn. Last Friday was our first class and I need to confess that they were just great. We still have sometime to know each other, but I have no doubt that it will go smoothly as always, and by the end of this year, I will be missing each little face as I always do.

This is the sort of animal I can stay seated in front for hours and hours, just watching and adoring such a beautiful creature. This picture was taken last March 14 in the Serengeti plains, it was two brothers stalking a prey for the early supper.

It is going to complete one year since I manage to click this beautiful mammal in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania, and our next expedition inside Africa will drive us straight into the same area. Our goal is to find this cheetah again and we surely know where to look it.

I should like to post the last news for 2014 by thanking everyone who helped me with my project and in special, every single animal I have clicked behind the lenses of my camera. These animals together with all the children I teach inside the Wildlife Project, were responsible to support and help me during the difficulties I have faced through the year.
Impossible not to mention Africa in my words, a place that I love since I was a little kid, and hopefully, will have the pleasure to visit and work with, for the rest of my entire life.
I should like to send to all my readers my very warmest wishes for 2015. May the New Year bring refreshment and joy to you and your families, May 2015 be filled with happiness and peace, tolerance and understanding within our world community.
Let us celebrate the wonders of our world, strive to protect them and learn to share them a little more equally, specially with children and animals. Happy New Year! Happy 2015!
