The project was supported by a grant from the Brazilian Ministry of Culture. This work, carried through in photography language black-and-white and use of the a view câmera, is a true artistic work, a visual document that portraies, with high photographic quality, that of what it remained of the Jesuitic Missions. They are images with high composicional balance, adjusted to a odd quality tonal, that show to the surrounding architectural with all your great appearance, exactly that they are in ruins now. The subject that we show here of the Jesuitic Missions, is of the Reduction of Saint Miguel of the Catholic Missions.
