Talk presents photojournalistic work depicting routines of military education institutions
The Laboratory for Studies of the Military (LEM) and Laboratory for Visual Culture Studies (LECV) at the FGV´s School of Social Sciences (FGV CPDOC), in partnership with Rio de Janeiro Federal University’s Laboratory for Security and Defense Studies, will host a talk by Paula Mariane on November 26, at 2 pm, titled “A Photojournalist in the Brazilian Army.” The event will take place in Auditorium 1027 in FGV’s main building (Praia de Botafogo, 190, Rio de Janeiro).
In order to share the main lessons she learned during her photographic project in the Brazilian Army, Mariane will present the routine activities of the education institutions for Brazilian military line officers: the Army Cadet Preparatory School, Agulhas Negras Military Academy, Officer Training School and Army Command and General Staff School. Her project also seeks to show the atmosphere among soldiers, especially during their training period.
Paula Mariane has an undergraduate degree in journalism from Campinas Catholic University and she is doing a master’s in international relations at Anhembi Morumbi University. She produced a photojournalism project called “Bonds of Honor – The Other Side of the Army,” in which she documented the career trajectory of Brazilian Army officers. She was the first person to produce a long-term series of photographs at the country’s Army academies.
