In the Rua Chile, right around the corner with the Praça da Sé Square, a small space with a mezzanine is dedicated to the French photographer Pierre Verger. Every year or so, the Pierre Verger Foundation (housed in Engenho Velho de Brotas) displays here a changing selection of about 30 pictures he made in Salvador (where he lived) and in the places in Africa and Europe that he visited. He depicted the daily life of fishermen, farmers and stevedores. In these pictures there's an undeniable gay element. He showed also a lot of interest in religion and rituals of different cultures. There are a few books about his life and works for sale, but the most beautiful ones are heavy and pricy.
