Today marks two years since I moved to this city. The two most amazing and challenging years of my life. It’s likely the mix of art galleries, museums, ballet, opera, symphony, fashion, subways, hot dog stands, shoe-box apartments, Central Park, rats, cream cheese and lox bagels, odors, colors, and people all together that makes this place so pleasantly uncomfortable. I am convinced NYC is one of the hardest schools you can attend.”
Oh, those lovely summer days, when you hang out with friends by the seaside. Taking a break from every day life. Last Friday Bruno Bicalho Carvalhaes took the train to join some friends at the Far Rockaway Beach, in Brooklyn, NY. “I wasn’t sure about who exactly was going to be there, but I took my film and Polaroid cameras just in case.
“I took this images with Filiza on an empty Miami beach a couple of months ago. I was on holiday with my family and Filiza was in NY but decided to spend the weekend in Miami so we could do this shooting together. We met up at 7 a.m. during a beautiful sunrise and started shooting one hour later.”
