For this photobook, Erik van der Weijde travelled to Pomerode, a municipality in the state of Santa Catarina, in southern Brazil. The settlement was founded by Pomeranian Germans in 1861, and is known as the most German city in Brazil, as the majority of its inhabitants are of German descent. In Pomerode, as in some other localities in southern Brazil, the German language is not considered a foreign language, but a Brazilian linguistic regionalism. Van der Weijde is therefore able to blend together several of his recurring themes, such as German history, architecture, and contemporary Brazil, in this series of images.
