This turtle, named Ellie, was under care at Lissenung Island Turtle Conservation in Papua New Guinea. This photo was taken the day it was released. The resort rescues turtles kept in captivity and also collects turtle eggs that would otherwise be eaten by locals, hatch them and release the baby turtles, with hope that they will one day come back to the island and restart the life cycle.
Frozen in time, drops of water stay together to form a bullet-shaped figure in a fraction of a millisecond shortly after losing one of their companions, only to disappear in the next instant - February 2021.
Photo taken at the incredible Misterious Lagoon. Until today, it has never reached its maximum depth, thus being a mystery that intrigues many. It is located in Bonito in Mato Grosso do Sul Brazil.
Posto 10 of Ipanema. The high end of the beach is a fixed postcard of the place.
Summer is the most carioca time in Brazil. With days of 50 degrees of temperature, the best time to enjoy the beach is from sunset. As Tim Maia sang "... from Leme to Pontal, there is nothing like it ...". These are the beach in the Leme neighborhood and the Pontal beach in the Recreicos dos Bandeitante neighborhood, neighborhoods in Rio de Janeiro that mark the first and last of the most popular beaches in the wonderful city, which are also Ipanema, Leblon, São Conrado and Barra da Tijuca . These sunsets never go unnoticed by anyone, children, tourists, sportsmen and even the dogs take the opportunity to love the last minutes of the sun and clap their hands.
The series is about, the subjacent and naturalised oppression of color people in Brazil, a series of portraits with one element that links to the past of slavery, such as cotton, coffee, cacao, domestic slavery, etc.
“The horse lost its individuality to act with man, playing a supporting role. The purpose of our work is to recover its connection with nature, without human interference, in full freedom. Without bridle or halter. Feeling the wind in the hair and the water through the body. We put horses in the spotlight as protagonists”.
Their most famous series is “Friesians in the Sea” with Friesians horses, one of the most beautiful and oldest breeds in the world, surrounded by the sea waves, in a deserted beach on the south coast of São Paulo State in Brazil. The Friesians were portrayed in many paintings of the Middle Ages, took part in The Crusades and acted in films about that time, such as “Ladyhawke”. Native from northern Holland, they are tall, strong and have an intense black color, that even shines. They are also widely used in dressage competitions for their beauty and elegance of movements. The horses that took part in the shooting were born from matrices imported from Holland. Theirs names are “Sietse” and “Prius” and they are dressage champions in Brazil.
“The inspiration came from the wild horses of Camargue, France, that usually run free along the seashore. The horse and the sea have a lot in common. Both are strong, mysterious, temperamental and very beautiful. The sea can be calm and charming, but it contains in itself an indomitable force, which is an analogy to the horse in freedom”. Says Ricardo, who spent part of his childhood on a farm in Mato Grosso State, where he learned to decode the secrets of horses behavior. “When they lay back their ears, for example, it is better to move away to avoid being kicked.”
It was the first time these two horses enter the sea, but soon they get used to the waves. The shooting was supported by trainers, who chose the best location. Even the dark clouds that appeared on the horizon, announcing the arrival of a storm, helped in the composition of the photo, making the images even more dramatic and magical.
San Giovanni Battista— 1508-1513, inspired by the famous work by Da Vinci, deals with the duality of heaven/earth, male/female, sacred/profane. The six photos are in the same size as Leonardo's painting.

This is Manuel, a simple okra marketer that sells his product from years and years in a traditional free fair in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil: \"Feira das Sete Portas\", that look likes an Arabic medina. The photo was not produced, it was taken in natural ambience and attitude. Manuel really uses a cabbage leaf in his head, according to him, not to be betrayed. And the okra blanket he is using was caught with his natural movements.

The warm sunset shines its golden light on an impressive tree and the almost perfect young wheat lines in a remote rural scene. Individual points of view will judge whether it is strong and mighty or fragile and resilient. One thing is certain, it will bring beauty and reflection.
