This photo was taken in a street just behind Ipanema Beach, Rio. I do not spend my holiday time looking for these type of shots, but i am a social planner so my gaze is always seeing social issues in community settings. I was struck by the setting – this man is on the street, his possessions are few, he has probably come in from the country looking for work. Brazil is largely a catholic country, so such iconic pictures give comfort.
I am aware that there are deep christian views held by some members of redbubble – my apologies in advance if this photo offends.
no post production “straight from the camera”..
