Brazil is a country of summertime, no doubt, but it's defintely worth looking at beyond festivals and football. Brazilian artist Raquel Brust has travelled the megalopolis that is Sao Paulo and has taken hyperdimensional portraits of anonymous citizens. These are then projected onto urban elements so it seems that the big city and its architecture is communicating with us. The project has received numerous awards in its home country and was part of PhotoEspaña Brasil 2013.
Why see it? It's a way to get to know Brazil from a different point of view. Contemplating the look behind Brazilian eyes in the middle of the concrete of the city has to move you. When their eyes meet yours, you become an active part of the exhibition. And in the country of football there's a bubbling emerging art scene we can't turn away from.
