In Brazilian Portuguese the word Cafuné is a gesture of affection towards a loved one.
This project is a gesture of affection towards Rio de Janeiro in all its extremes.
Focusing tangentially on the "pacification" of the favelas in Rio, the book is a document of the Marvelous City during the World Cup, the Olympic Games, the Pope’s visit and the massive protests in 2013.
While the work documents a fundamental period in Brazilian history, the project is both personal and intimate.
A photographer's diary of the joy and sorrow of a city as intense and unequal as Rio de Janeiro.
A personal reconciliation and a bittersweet farewell to a place and a time of extremes.
