Tamo Junto Rio hip-hop photos in Vice
One of the key projects that I was working on this year in Rio was about the growing hip hop ‘roda de rima’ scene in the city, mainly in the peripheria of the city. Most nights of the week, young up and coming artists meet at self organized events, rhyming about the various issues that affect their lives, including Police violence, inequality, education, transportation, gangs and violence. Primarily a film project, to run soon, I have also been shooting a photo story on the subject, and this week in collaboration with John Surico and Angela Almeida, some of the photos from the piece and a great text were published in Vice.
