Photographer's Note

Unlike it might seem, this is not a fashion show photograph. The lady is a Brazilian samba dancer moving frenetically, as if the dance itself was the only way to exorcise all the sadness she could have ever felt.

Whenever they wear something more than a string, Brazilians usually choose bright vivid colours to dress when they’re up to a few steps of samba. I love Brazilian music and although I personally prefer the sounds of some Bahia well known musicians, or the jazz fusion sessions inspired by Bossa Nova, I think that Samba (as a dance and as a style of music) may be particularly representative of this nation’s culture in the link with its African roots.

Thank you Brazil for the colours and rhythm you bring into the World.
