When photography turns social experience
Esta figura é resultado de uma experiência social, isso conta a história de uma criança com uma vida simples brincando na beira do mar, pulando nas águas quentes do Nordeste, Pipa RN. Isto mostra o movimento da alegria, simplicidade, pulando, voando e repetindo com cada vez mais entusiasmo e alegria. Esta foi a forma que eu encontrei de colaborar com aquelas crianças, capturando o melhor deles e da alegria daquele momento.
I was walking on the beach front in Pipa (RN) when I saw those kids playing jumping in the water from a wooden peer. I immediately felt there would be really nice photos to shoot from the situation.
I didn't want to shoot at them just like that I would feel steeling you know? So, as I am not shy and I always had a good contact with kids I started to look at them first and then talk to them. I think they were surprised that this gringo could speak Portuguese and they were curious. They turned even proud to make the best jumps ever for me :) I was showing them the pictures and they were so happy and enjoying themselves so much.
I stayed with them almost half an hour, that was really nice.
That's what I like... when photography turns out an interesting social experience.
I loved it, I want this to happen more.
