About her series under the surveillance of ancient animals photographer Maria Oliveira wrote me: “I am following the lives of three women, mother, daughter and sister in law, who live together and alone. With this project, I want to explore this relationship between women, the links that unite them despite the difficulty.
And there is also this link to Earth, to Nature. Life has a rhythm, the crops cycle, the seasons. Here, there is no hurry, there’s time for the people and for the silence. These three women together turned to Earth as something primordial and eternal.”
