She has published twelve books, including Entrevistas by Ed Madalena in 2014, Sobre São Paulo by Ed Madalena in 2013, Entre Morros by Cosac Naify in 2012 Aeroporto by Ed Codex in 2002, Quando eu Vi by Ed Punctum, in 2009. In 2013, Jaguaribe cofounded the publishing house Ed. Madalena with Iatã Canabrava and Claudi Carreras.

The Library Series

Brazil has a long tradition of artists and scientists working together documenting its nature. Based on this tradition I decided to make a library series which condensed the idea of preservation, images and books. I photographed forests from all over Brazil and the images were placed on book covers as if each book had the history and necessary information on that specific forest. Some images are large bookcases, others are bookshelves. It’s a conceptual approach to the need for preservation. Books bring us the idea of ownership, so in a way these images became our responsibility. They are ours to take care of.

Commission Proposal

Agrobusiness is one of the most important economic growth factors in Brazil. The Mato Grosso region has not been sufficiently documented as it belongs to major industries which make it hard to access. In line with having a historical background to my research, I would like to retrace a part of the area that was once totally occupied by natives Nhambiquaras and Pareci Indians in the early 20th Century. The first explorers to reach this area were soldiers in the Rondon Commission.

My grandfather was the geographer in the Rondon commission tasked with creating maps of the region. Therefore this project has a double meaning for me in retracing the history of Brazil as seen by my grandfather and looking into preservation from a contemporary Rondon perspective that takes into account the necessary economic growth of the country.
