Brésils - São Paulo New

Brésils - São Paulo

French photographer Ludovic Carème has been living and photographing in Brasil for over ten years. In this publication, Carème shares an uncompromising portrait of Brasil today. He has focused his lens on the city of São Paulo and more particularly on the inhabitants of the favela Agua Branca made of poor workers trapped between constant harassment by the police and the impossibility to find an accommodation  despite the fact that they are working. His powerful portraits testify of an exclusion of part of the population and of the gigantic social gaps that keep increasing. Wandering the city, he also documents the moradores da rua, homeless people disappearing on sidewalks in the middle of abandoned buildings in the city center of São Paulo.

Ludovic Carème is publishing simultaneously a second publication dedicated to his work in Brasil, Amazonie, on the primal forest and its cultivations of rubber along the Amazon river (Éditions Xavier Barral, 2019).
