These images are part of my doctoral work in Production Engineering at COPPE-UFRJ. I developed a visual material for educational use, based on authors such as Paulo Freire, Flusser, Hassan Zaoual and Buber. This work reinforces the importance of dialogue and critical thinking focusing on the use of images to generate debate in the classroom.

Nine images about Santa Marta favela, in Rio de Janeiro, were created.

For more information about this work, I recommend you to visit the thesis’ website. It was designed to communicate my thesis to a non-academic audience. The pictures created for this work can be downloaded and used for educational purpose. You can also download the pdf of the thesis on this link.
