PORTRAITS FROM LIMERCY FORLIN
This exhibition collects approximately 7,500 portraits of the residents of Poços de Caldas, all taken by Limercy Forlin between 1958 and 1982. He owned an important photography studio in town, where he photographed from politicians and well-known individuals to common workers and immigrants.
The collection contains images of people portrayed by Forlin at different moments in their lives, from youth to old age. In 2016, his heirs donated a large collection of his negatives to the IMS.
