Of average height, thin, slow steps, in his hand a professional photo camera, Arnol Conceição was climbing the Market Street, born in the neighboring city of São Félix, rooting, however, in Cachoeira, married to Edite, also a photographer.
After having participated as a photogrphy assistant and as an extra in the prize-winning O Pagador de Promessas, Arnold produced some short films where he focused on the marginalization of afrodescendants in the two sister cities, their lives and habits.
