The artist Luiz Braga made several aesthetic experiments, from his black and white photos, the Night Vision series, and his color photographs. However, color does not appear only in his work, but is in close dialogue with Cabocla culture. For this article, two photographs by Luiz Braga, Barqueiro azul (1992) and Ponta d'Areia (1988), superimposed on the culture category Cabocla were analyzed. In addition to the dialogue between the third photograph by Luiz Braga, Curipira, (2018) and my audiovisual/ethnographic production carried out on Marajo Island in May 2018. The main contribution of this research is an investigation of Luiz Braga’s photos from a socio-anthropological approach.
