I haven’t done any closeup portrait shots in a while, so was happy when some friends asked me if I could shoot some CV/facebook and LinkedIn pictures of them. We started with having a nice diner, then took both ‘official shots’, and a lot fun ‘fooling-around’ shots for my photobooth project and it ended up with these black and white shots of my friend Jutta. Thanks for the nice evening guys!
While I was in Rio to cover the Carnival, I suddenly got a facebook message from a guy I knew from my time in Copenhagen, Denmark, just randomly asking me if I wanted to go to a HipHop street party / bloco later that evening, because he knows the organizer. Was surprised to suddenly get a message after 2 years not speaking, but as glad to get that offer. I sadly was severely delayed as I had to cover some other bloco too… So the party was basically over, but I still got to talk more than an hour (due to my lovely personal translator Sonia, thanks again so much! ) with some awesome people, and they made it all worth while, and they are one of the biggest reasons for me to come back to Rio again!
As there was not much party anymore, I just did some portrait shots of the people around me.
