Rio de Janeiro. From my book/magazine “Based on a True Story”, BurnBooks (link in profile). A kaleidoscope of imagery and life of the Carioca culture. Up close and personal. I get wrapped up in whatever I’m shooting. Get to know quickly a few people around me in any situation, then don’t move much. The only way to integrate is to stay put. I always figure that wherever I am is where the picture will be once inside any scenario. One thing I’m always telling my students is please don’t wander around looking for pictures. Wasted energy. Thinking something is around the next corner is usually futile. Have the eye of a hawk. Zero in. Be quiet, smooth,intense.#brazil #rio#basedonatruestory
