'Brasil' is a photographic exploration of culture, landscape, and light by the photographer Kristin Capp. Shooting in black-and-white  lm with a Rolleiflex camera, Capp turns her lens on urban Brazilian landscapes with an encompassing curiosity that resists classification. The eight years of work presented here reveals a highly personal, fluid, syncopated, and complex Brazil. Avoiding heroic or ideological tropes, Capp captures the complexity of the sprawling and diverse country with images that range from portraits to candid urban scenes to pure abstraction.

In Rio de Janeiro, Capp is drawn to the relationship between the natural shapes of the landscape and the city’s constructed forms; in Bahia, we are immersed in the culture that represents the largest African diaspora in the world; and in São Paulo, she simultaneously captures the dreams, contradictions, and values of its people as well as its public spaces and physical structures. Brazilian landscapes, architecture, and ways of life are present in the photos, but in an informal intimacy that undresses these themes.

'Brasil' features an essay by noted Brazilian art critic Paulo Venancio Filho and a collaborative poem by Sergio Alcides.
