El Cuerpo

Self Initiated
Project Overview
A mental postcard of a couple in Brazil that got me thinking about how  sensuality and the enjoyment of the body is so tied to the perception of Latino culture. Portrayed in mass culture expressions such as reggaeton, our connection to the body has way deeper roots. Being a region made by mostly developing countries with a long history of political and economical conflicts, life in Latin America can not only be difficult, but also intense and -for less privileged social groups- even brief. I believe that's why we celebrate and honor life with all our body: because it's fragile, fleeting and incredibly beautiful.
