My intention for the residency was to shoot a photo essay of the neighborhood Liberdade, and how it relates to Harlem, NY.  My project did not change due to conditions; however, due to the commute from Itaparica to Salvador I needed to find housing in Salvador.  I love Bahia (it is my favorite place) and the Instituto Sacatar was absolutely a positive experience.  Sacatar helped me discover a new layer of Bahia I was not familiar with.
