“Traveling around Brazil giving photography classes and provoking enchantment on students is very romantic! The workshops allow children and young people a time to reflect on a message they want to transmit and to contemplate where they are every day, creating a new perspective. This is something very valuable these days.”

ImageMagica’s educator

“In beautiful, touching and often pungent images, the photographer André François shows us, in several places around Brazil, the work of people dedicated to caring for the patients. And doing this, he teaches us a lot.”
