With Brazil on everyone’s minds in the coming months, today we look to Rio de Janeiro and the inspiring series En Plein Air by Gabriele Galimberti & Edoardo Delille. With images taken from up high, this series is an ode to a country where sport is so much more than something to be watched….it is to be lived!
And like we saw in the series by Christopher Pillitz who captures the obsession with football that most Brazilians embody, the all embracing ‘have-space-will-make-it-fit’ attitude towards sport in even the most crowded neighbourhood, is both inspiring and refreshing.
In addition to these images Galimberti has some other series that come highly recommended – Local Celebrities where he photographs individuals who have made a big difference to the communities they live in, Delicatessen with love that features what grandmothers do best – compete with rest of the world to feed us, Mirrors and Windows that gives us a peek into the bedrooms of girls across the world,
and Toy Stories where he has kids posing with their favourite toys.
We don’t normally repeat photographers on Beanstories but Galimberti might be someone we return to in the not so distant future.
We leave you with our favourite from his Toy Stories series.
