By Gustavo Malheiros
280 Pages / Over 150 Photographs
Acclaimed Brazilian photographer Gustavo Malheiros has been able to capture the way 46 Brazilians love, hate, and understand New York, the city they call home. Published by Arte Ensaio in partnership with Pointed Leaf Press, the large-scale 280-page book features stellar ex-patriots who have excelled in their professional fields—from financial analysts, to musicians, museum curators, models, and even a tattoo artists. Personalities include the singer Bebel Gilberto, the fashion designer Francisco Costa, TV presenter Pedro Andrade, MMA fighter Renzo Gracie, and artist Janaina Tschape. All were interviewed by the journalist Fernanda Bak of the Economist. The text appears in both English and Portuguese. Photographer Bruce Weber opens the book with a preface on the Brazilians in his life, and the book ends with a prologue by Gustavo Malheiros talking about his first photo shoots in Manhattan as well as his a description of the development of the two-year-long project.
