Photographer's Note

Indigenous language of "big water", the Paragua鐄, approximately 600 km long, is the longest river in Bahia and genuinely responds by water from several municipalities. Popular for fishing, has a large variety of fish, especially the peacock, crumat, betrayed, and piau pleco, and shellfish and crustaceans. Abundant clay on its banks, rises the beautiful craft of pottery. Populated by legends and myths, Paragua鐄 inhabits the imaginary location. Among the most popular beliefs, that of "Mother of Waters", sort of fitted Iemanj power of enchantment of the Sirens, the "Water Nigga" which, like Saci Perere, plays to scare everyone you see wandering banks of the river, and Sucuiuba feared anaconda snake, which by their large, turned into an almost mystical to the riverside population. The Paragua鐄 River separates the historic towns of Cachoeira and Sao Felix, joined by an old iron bridge, dated 1859.
