About

Modern Brazil is a collection of pictures, writing and short films exploring modern-day Brazil in all its beauty, liveliness and ambition.

The work goes beyond Carnival, beaches and football to look a little closer at how Brazilians really live, and how Brazil is developing into one of the most powerful countries in the world.

The Youtube page is available here, featuring videos of trucks chasing motorbikes through heavy Brazilian traffic, top tips on staying safe in the 2014 World Cup , eating raw sugar-cane, a cool spider eating a dragonfly and a behind-the-scenes tour of a $270-an-hour love motel in Belo Horizonte, featuring naughty-toy room service, private nightclubs and personal swimming pools.
