"I decided to load some Kentmere 400 black and white film into the camera. I believed that this would be a good test for the camera with a relatively lower risk of images looking shit after potential under/over exposures. Before coming to Rio I also decided that shooting in B & W that my images would be more authentic and in line with the true feeling of Rio, an image morphed in my head mostly by popular cultures such as the City of God and Brazilian funk music. Brazil is sweat dripping, breakbeat funk pounding, asses shaking and bodies swinging. Beers spraying, sun burning, straight from the bottle drinking, skin showing and lime cutting can also be expected on any day of the week. The city has an enigmatic allure with an energized beat and intoxicating rhythm to what it moves."
