Photographer's Note

Juscelino Kubitschek (JK) was a poor orphan boy who got to study for medicine at same time he got a public work as a telegraphist to survive. In the university he became friend of a son of a great politic leader and visiting his house he knew SARA. They got married and soon the family launched him as a candidate, he was mayor of the capital city of Minas Gerais, governor of Minas Gerais and president of Brazil, when built a new capital in the center of the country named Brasνlia, the motto of his government was "50 years in five", not for chance he is one of the most important presidents Brazil had.
He went to a short exile when politicians were persecuted during the hard part of military dictatorship, and he was preparing to launch his candidature in 1975, against the project of the military government, when he died in an car accident, and it was created a theory about he was killed by the government, what was not true.
He loved Dona Sara (Lady Sara) and she was his support in many aspects during his life, but, at same time, he was very seductive and had many love affairs, even with the wife of one of his ministers, who wanted to kill him with a gun. It is told he was going to a secrete date in Sγo Paulo when he died in that car accident in 1976.
After his death Lady Sara did a movement to create this memorial, created by Niemeyer, paying homage to JK, but she had to deal with the ill will of the military government. This memorial is one of the most photogenic places in Brasνlia, you can take thousands of different images.
Here you can see the couple in the bench and the building of the memorial illuminated in pink. I will show the memorial some weeks ahead. You can see JK again in the top of the obelisk, waving.

JK foi um menino σrfγo que conseguiu estudar para medicina, trabalhando como telegrafista para sobreviver. Na faculdade ele ficou amigo do filho de um importante lνder polνtico mineiro e na casa dele se encantou com Sara, a sua filha, e se casou com ela. Pouco tempo depois comeηou sua carreira polνtica que passou pelos cargos de prefeito de BH, governador de MG e presidente do Brasil, quando ele ergueu a nova capital no centro do paνs e cujo lema de governo era "50 anos em 5", nγo por acaso ι um dos presidentes mais importantes da nossa histσria.
JK foi perseguido durante a parte mais dura do regime militar e depois de um breve exνlio, regressou. Ele estava preparando uma campanha polνtica a presidente, contra a vontade do governo, quando morreu num acidente de carro, gerando a ideia errτnea de que ele havia sido morto pelos militares.
Ele amava Dona Sara e ela foi o grande apoio para sua vida pϊblica e particular, contudo ele era muito sedutor e vivia tendo casos amorosos. Certa vez se envolveu com a esposa de um de seus ministros que o queria matar com um tiro. No dia do tal acidente de carro em 1976, ele estava indo para um encontro secreto com uma mulher em Sγo Paulo.
Depois de sua morte D. Sara fez um movimento para criar um memorial em homenagem a JK, com projeto de Niemeyer, mesmo contra a vontade dos militares. Esse prιdio ι muito fotogκnico e podemos conseguir mil belas fotos dele.
Vemos aqui o casal sentado num banco e ao fundo o prιdio do memorial iluminado em rosa. Podemos ver JK acenando do topo do obelisco. Mostrarei mais desse monumento daqui algumas semanas.
