EYES ON BRAZIL As we slowly pull ourselves out of the darkness of another European winter, one country is already dominating the first half of 2014: all eyes are on Brazil, for obvious reasons…but let’s look beyond the pitch, towards another view on the country. Despite social improvement in the last few years, the facts can’t be ignored: the violence and organised crime of the favelas are not easy to eradicate. Yet, daily life there can be presented with more subtlety, photographically. And so we are happy to have found at least two foreign photographers (Vincent Rosenblatt and Frederik Buyckx) that have each independently decided to live among the residents of the favelas for a significant amount of time, offering them the chance to contort the clichés. To show Brazil from another perspective is also something that José Medeiros once attempted, when he reported on the culture of the Afro-Brazilian communities in the Northern states during the 1950s. In collaboration with the Instituto Moreira Salles (IMS), the organisation that manages Medeiros’s archives, we include a selection of his work and explain his rather groundbreaking approach towards photography, something that a few decades later found another outlet with the idiosyncratic aesthetics of Mario Cravo Neto. Besides all that, GUP# 40 (!) also showcases the breadth and depth of Brazilian photography. Finally, we have reviews of some classics in the canon of international photography books on Brazil and of course we cannot ignore Genesis, the latest epic publication from the grandmaster of Brazilian photography, Sebastião Salgado. When seen all together, there’s clear proof of Brazil being so much more beyond the spectacle of Carnival and football. All eyes on Brazil! Erik Vroons, Chief Editor

o rio de janeiro by Bruce Weber

© Bruce Weber

Softcover 200 pages 336 x 287 mm Knopf, 1986 (1st edition) ISBN 9780394559384 From $200 via Amazon

Bruce Weber (1946, USA) was one of the first to use Rio as decoration for his fashion photo productions and the book can indeed be considered the starting point for the trend of Western photographers who seek out Brazil as a locale for their shoots. While fashion is not explicitly the focus of ‘O Rio’, the author’s established prominence within the industry imbues the imagery and the locale with a feeling of glamour, decadence and sensuality. It brings all the elements of Weber’s commercial work together, but also incorporates a vivacious pastiche of original and borrowed material: landscapes, news photos, family snapshots and even drawings by Richard Giglio. O Rio de Janeiro was designed by Sam Shadid, the first in a long series of collaborations between the photographer and art director.

o. niemeyer by Erik van der Weijde

Rollo-Press and 4478ZINE have decided to revise and reprint O. Niemeyer, the 2012 artist book by Erik van der Weijde. He travelled to cities like Brasilia, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Paris, Milan and Berlin (among other places) to photograph the architecture of Oscar Niemeyer. Specifically the images of the so-called ‘utopian city’ of Brasilia are stark and carefully devoid of people, perhaps a pure celebration of the architect’s vision or perhaps indicative of modernism's dehumanising failings. Once more, the obsession with his subject has led the artist to produce an archive presented in a book, following the same design and size as This Is Not My Wife, only now in an oblong format. This reprint has been designed around a white faux leather hardcover, conceived by Urs Lehni.

(based on a true story) is a collection of spectacular, mysterious moments. The story moves with fluidity and ease, all day and all night, through a city that is never named on a continent never specified. Is it journalism? Is it staged? Harvey hits all the high points – even clichés – of Rio de Janeiro, but his treatment is subversive. Beaches, mountains, high society, favelas, jungles, voodoo; they’re all here, but thrown together in a high-energy, digital montage that evokes the emerging aesthetic of Chaos Cinema. Not just a book, it is a puzzle, a game and a story to be read many different times, in many different ways. The images tumble and boil in your mind, the way an intense foreign trip or a sexual adventure revisits through the blur of half-sleep. This is in no small measure the work of Bryan Harvey, David’s son, collaborator and architect of the design. The book is sold out and already a collector’s item, but the large magazine version, a whole different experience, is still available.

Rio Baile Funk by Vincent Rosenblatt

“I could hear this incredible bass, the pulse of this music. It made the foundations of my house shake�

luiz braga

Nightvisions Photographing first at night, Luiz Braga (1956, Belém) later decided to bring his infrared photography to the daylight. By adding several filters to his equipment, he found a way to maximize the effect: Braga makes landscapes that have been freed from their actual colours and restructures the aesthetic notion of their appearance. The Amazon river’s creeks, its overhanging trees and the clandestine means of transportation, are all stripped from their common appeal – a certain beauty we have become familiarised with over the years – and can now be seen as something altogether different. The river, the jungle and its people all look ‘foreign’ again. Being attached to analogue photography for a long time, this project is Braga’s first attempt to create something digitally. Considering the extent of his experimental take on the series, he certainly didn’t take half measures! Yet, despite the cuttingedge techniques used to create them, the photos are saturated in an old-fashioned, almost fantastical aura, reminiscent of etchings and engravings. The result is a perfect balance of the natural and the unnatural, epitomising photography's potential to synthesise past and present in order to foretell the future.

gustavo lacerda

A lbinos Over the course of history, various groups of people have been taunted or shunned because of birth defects or genetic abnormalities. One such group is albinos, who are born with a melanin defect, resulting in the loss of pigment in the skin, eyes and hair, causing vision problems, and making them susceptible to various skin cancers. Gustavo Lacerda (1970, Belo Horizonte) has been attracted to the peculiar beauty of albinism for some time. Since the beginning of 2009, he has attempted to reflect the inner world of Brazilian albinos, and he does so in a consistent and idiosyncratic style of portraiture. Using a kind of theatrical interference, including costumes, hair and make-up, Lacerda indeed succeeded in finding the right balance between his aesthetic vision and capturing a truthful reflection of his subjects’ inner selves. Although Lacerda experienced some discomfort at first, a certain hesitation from the albinos that he approached, he eventually managed to convince them to participate. Often forced to stay in the shade due to their condition, or socially hidden away, albinos may grow accustomed with obscurity, but Lacerda offered them a brush with exposure. His images help create for them a new status, enabling them to experience a feeling that they were not so much acquainted with: pride.

frederik buyckx

Jesus, Make-Up, and Football Frederik Buyckx (1984, Belgium) rented a ‘pied-à-terre’ for a few months in a favela, sharing the inhabitants’ day-to-day worries. In Rio de Janeiro, around 20% of inhabitants live in improvised facilities located in populous neighbourhoods which lie cheek by jowl with the better, more middle-class neighbourhoods (‘asfaltos’). In these mountain favelas only a few things actually matter: Jesus, make-up and football. It is there that Buyckx learned to come to terms with the rhythmic ‘ra-ta-ta’ of gunfire at night. One of these nocturnal shootouts might lead you to the conclusion that a favela is run exclusively by crime, the law of the fastest bullet. While the violence cannot be denied, there’s more to be seen beyond the poverty and unemployment – for those who spend more than an afternoon in the slums.

Frederik Buyckx is a freelance photographer for the Belgian newspaper De Standaard and his work has been featured in several magazines. This series gained an honourable mention at World Press Photo 2013 (Category ‘Daily Life’) and has been nominated for (and winner of ) several awards.

rogerio reis

Carnival in Canvas Rogerio Reis (1954, Rio de Janeiro) comes from a documentary tradition, and considers it a daily exercise to take a journalistic angle on the human condition. Since 1987, he has been photographing the street carnival in Rio at various locations, including the festivities in the financial and political heart of the city, in order to highlight specific social aspects of the celebrations. Reis also documented Ipanema, the extravagant (and gayminded) beach district, as well as the sober and more improvised festivities at the rural and less prosperous Campo Grande. In the locomotion of everyday life, the communities of each of these places typically move around on a more anonymous level, but during Carnival, everything is different. These Carnival portraits are a reflection of this metamorphosis, when people take advantage of the opportunity to dress up and show off. Employing a weathered and aged portable canvas as a backdrop, thus creating a studio on the spot, Reis permits all the revellers a brief moment of stardom, an escape away from the mundane.

Rogerio Reis is a distinguished photojournalist in his home country, currently working on urban issues on the intersection between documentary photography and contemporary visual art. He is the 1999 winner of Brazil’s National Prize for Documentary Photography. A book on the Carnival project (Na Lona) was published in September 2001.

mona kuhn

Native The image world of Mona Kuhn (1969, Sao Paolo) is a lush, decadent and elegant place, but one that is also indeterminate and mystified. The people look desirable and the landscapes exotic, the colours of the surroundings are warm, and the blur in some of the images address the steamy intimacy of the Amazon rainforest. The voyage, as Baudelaire says, takes you back to yourself, “where even the landscape resembles you”, and with this remark in mind we can assume that this is what is at stake here: these images are in fact an artistic reflection of the psychological state of Mona Kuhn. Although born in this country, Kuhn – from German descent – has displaced herself from her birthplace Brazil and this makes defining her as a ‘native’ somewhat problematic. Living abroad creates another identity altogether, a strange mix of memories and experiences in which nostalgia and reality (sometimes confusingly) blur into one another and with that, create a whole new personal perspective on the world.

Hardcover 88 pages ISBN 9783865219138 Steidl, 2009 € 36 / $40 (out of print)

When Kuhn decided to confront her past and return to Brazil, this ‘inverted odyssey’ (in the words of Shelley Rice, author of an essay on this work) made her discover a world as she was creating it. Native, therefore, is more than an atmospheric reportage of beautiful young people in the nude. It is also a meditation on a photographic place, removed from the concept of distance; a heritage that naturally flourishes within, no matter where you go.

barbara wagner

Shining Star Barbara Wagner (1980, Brasília) sheds light on the Afro-Brazilian phenomena of Maracatu, as performed in the northeastern region of Brazil. in the age of slavery, cults like these were once transported from Africa to the New World, and have often transgressed into visual spectacles that very much deviate from the original practices. Maracatu has thus become a visual spectacle that attracts tourist from all over the world. But Wagner, aware of how an ethnographic interest can end up becoming a product for cultural consumption, attempts to overcome the superficial side of the Maracatu performance. Spending one year in Nazaré da Mata – a small village in Pernambuco – Wagner photographed the participants of the group Estrela Brilhante, Cambinda do Cumbe and Águia Dourada during their rehearsals prior to the carnival. The horizontal series begins when the music starts up: the group gets into the spirit of things and the performers react to the frenetic rhythms of the wind instruments and drums. Her vertical portraits show ‘caboclos’ hanging around waiting, before the music begins and everyone joins in the dance.

Ensaio / Rehearsal Hardcover 80 pages 190 x 150 mm Self-published, 2010 English and Portuguese (edition: 1000 copies)


julio bittencourt

A few miles from the icons of Brazilian landscape is an artificial salt-water lake located not far from a more prosaic beach. Julio Bittencourt (1980, São Paulo) went to visit this Piscinão de Ramos, or ‘big pool of Ramos’ several times. It is where thousands of people who live in the surrounding favelas of Rio choose to go every summer. On the busiest summer days, the shallow lake – polluted and more suited to wading and paddling than swimming – is jammed with bodies of all shapes and sizes. Contrasting with the all too familiar narcissistic crowd that inhabits the more mundane beaches of Rio de Janeiro, the Ramos visitors come with a completely different set of beauty standards. More apt for a Rubens painting than a fashion magazine, the women’s succulent curves are proudly displayed, their breasts miraculously squeezed into colourful but seriously undersized bikinis. Those who go to Ramos beach are of a different sort, indeed, and so are the photographs of Julio Bittencourt.

Retratos Pintados

We are delighted to present you with a selection of reproductions of Brazilian 'retratos pintados' (hand-painted vernacular photographs) from the incredible collection of Titus Riedl. A historian by profession, Riedl has a deep love for these objects, resulting in his slow but steady accumulation of a unique archive, which together represents a stunning inventory of localized Brazilian photo-painting techniques from the early 1940s through the 1990s. Most of the subjects are of mixed indigenous and Afro-Brazilian heritage and were primarily from the lower and middle socio-economic classes of the region. Clients placed orders through street traders called ‘bonequeiros’, who gathered the photos and then took them to ‘puxadores’, who enlarged the photographs. They were then given to a group of photopainters, each of whom specialized in a certain aspect of the post-production technique. At a time when black and white photographs were not considered dramatic enough, these hand-painted portraits both glamorised and idealised their subjects. Family photos were enlarged and coloured, conferring status on those portrayed, much like icons or saints. Using oil washes and other techniques specific to the region, local artisans embellished clothing with pattern and colour, smoothed wrinkles, added jewellery and sometimes resurrected deceased relatives, illustrating the fantasies and desires of their customers. A pre-digital form of Photoshop avant la lettre!

Introduction by Martin Parr Hardcover 68 pages 254 x 305 mm ISBN: 9781590052679 Nazraeli, 2010 € 45 / $60

Retratos pintados are thus defined by the bold, flat fields of colour that merge the reality of the original photograph with an idealised vision of the individuals and families depicted in them. If you visit a house in the northeast of Brazil, it is not unlikely to encounter one of these photo-paintings on the wall. Though, the images produced nowadays are far more likely to be computer-manipulated rather than hand-painted.

The Baghdad Photo Studio © Yaseen Al-Obeidy

Yaseen Al-Obeidy

Thousands of children, men, women, bridal couples and babies have been immortalized over the last 45 years in Yaseen Al-Obeidy’s photo studio, just outside of Baghdad. Al-Obeidy first used analogue cameras to capture people in black and white, later he used digital cameras to create colourful portraits, and since 2001, he’s used Photoshop extensively. The turmoil, wars and attacks that Baghdad has suffered are not literally depicted in the images, yet they form the unseen background of the portraits. The exhibition will contain around 100 photos that tell the story of ordinary people in an exceptional country.

Surfaces – New Photography from Switzerland Various Artists

© Beni Bischof

One element of contemporary photography is a concern for surfaces and the investigation of their supposed smoothness and impenetrability. With this idea in mind, Fotomuseum Winterthur presents works from their collection in the exhibition Surfaces – New Photography from Switzerland. Have new developments in photography been made due to the digital turn, and how is this apparent? How is our relationship to the tangible object changing, when, for example, photographs are no longer shown in photo albums but as files on screens? The exhibition contains works by various artists, including Stefan Burger, Collectif_Fact, Cédric Eisenring & Thomas Julier, Matthias Gabi, Dominique Koch, Adrien Missika, Shirana Shahbazi, and Herbert Weber, among others.

25 Years of Photography Andreas H. Bitesnich

© Andreas H. Bitesnich

The Austrian star photographer Andreas H. Bitesnich is celebrating his 50th birthday in 2014 and looks back on 25 years of photography in a major exhibition at KUNST HAUS WIEN. The retrospective, in close cooperation with the photographer, is specially developed for KUNST HAUS WIEN and presents not only Bitesnich’s iconic photographs, but also various works never previously presented. Early in Bitesnich’s career, his nude photography caused a sensation with his sculptural approach and dramatic lighting. Bitesnich provides personal insights into his photographic universe and the exhibition also displays numerous documents that offer a close look at his working methods. Contact sheets and Polaroids, book dummies and documentary film material all add up to an exciting ‘making of’ section.

Veramente Guido Guidi

Puente la Reina, Espagne, 08.1995 © Guido Guidi

The Henri Cartier-Bresson Fondation, in cooperation with Huis Marseille in Amsterdam and Museo d’Arte della città di Ravenna, presents a major exhibition of Guido Guidi. A pioneer of the new Italian landscape photography, Guidi has a keen eye for the cultural and historical stratification of the contemporary, urban landscape, and this year won the Pixsea Oeuvre Award. Guidi studied architecture in Venice and his work as photographer started in the late 1960s, influenced by architectural history, neorealistic Italian film, and later fascinated by Italy’s landscape. His work appears small, very precise, yet in his choice of images and editing, Guidi gives his work strong poetic power.
