SOLAR MENINOS DE LUZ
LIBERDADE DE EXPRESSÂO (FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION)
RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL
A 6 week photography project with 15 children from the favela Cantagalo in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Based on the idea of a spiral the children were asked to photograph starting with themselves then spiraling outwards to their family, their friends and their community. Their were asked to put their images in context with texts explaining how and why they took the photograph. At the end of the workshop an exhibition was held at the gallery Meninos de Luz.
In cooperation with Chantal James and Meninos de Luz. Made possible with the Julien J. Studley Photography Fellowship. Produced during the International Field Program (IFP) at The New School University.
