The photographic essay Morada do Caboclo proposes a reflection on the current context of traditional populations in the semi-arid region of Bahia, Brazil in the face of the exodus of young people, which materializes in an ageing population and isolation of its members unable to incorporate new contemporary practices. Migrations are often the visible side of an invisible phenomenon. Large human displacements, as a rule, precede or follow profound changes, whether from an economic and political point of view or in social or cultural terms. The population dynamics in the semiarid region of Bahia have been marked by a drastic population decrease. The great change seen in recent years indicates a more selective process, with the young population moving to urban centers. Felipe Fittipaldi poetically captured people and landscapes that illustrate this phenomenon.
