Cover of Leica’s M Magazine

Cover of Leica’s M Magazine featuring some of my Brazil work. This from Salvador, Bahia. Rio and Bahia have been favorites of mine for awhile now. Both featured in NatGeo. Rio the source of one book and another upcoming. If a photographer or any artist gets locked into a place, there must be a reason.
