Please come join me at the Head On Photo Festival for my featured show, Viver no Meio do Barulho (Living in the Middle of the Noise).
Opening at 6-8pm, 29th May at Gaffa Gallery in the centre of Sydney, the show will be up until the 8th June.
Viver no Meio do Barulho (Living in the Middle of the Noise) is a documentary project based in Rio de Janeiro. In 2006, I photographed nine young people across four favelas in Rio de Janeiro. Seven years on, I reconnected with those same people to discover what their lives are like now.
While all eyes are on Brazil with the upcoming FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympics, these everyday stories offer another perspective on a world that is often eclipsed by the media attention on glamorous beach carnival life or dramatic violent crime.
