For the last four years, and after being diagnosed with cancer, Ricardo developed the photography project "Pitchfotos", which, based on Visual Studies, has explored the nude male body of young men from various parts of the country, as a reflection on stereotypes of beauty, non-hegemonic masculinities, the cleansing of culture, queer ecology, among other themes.
