4 years and another World Cup, it’s hard not think about Brazil and then about Capoeira, the traditional dance martial art. I was fortunate to have an opportunity to photograph members of a Capoeira school in Oakland recently. It’s awesome what these guys can do, and with such musical grace. After much deliberation in Photoshop, I think the images look best straight up, without the battered seamless backdrop smoothed away. It has an edge and authenticity to it that seems to fit well. Thanks for stopping by, comments welcome!
