Hello, and welcome!

Well, this is obviously the first post on this blog so I should use it to tell you a little bit about myself and the purpose of this project.
I am originally from New Hampshire, USA and have been spending the last four years living in Belo Horizonte and over the last few months of my stay here I’ve been working on my photography considerably. Brazil, in general, provides a photographer, be it a casual snap-shooter, or professional/commercial artist, an astounding volume of subject matter, ranging from the vivid daily lifestyle and interactions to the well-known (or unknown) tourist spots.

Belo Horizonte, MG

I’ve decided that rather on scouting out recognizable landmarks or “stereotypical” Brazilian scenes like carnaval and the Christ Redeemer, my photography should reflect and explore the day to day life of a city that, although accommodates nearly 2.6 million, is very little known outside Brazil’s borders.
I will post photographs, including ones taken in other parts of the country, along with a short blurb to give the image some context. I will also use this blog for sharing some particular views on photographic subjects, tendencies, equipments, etc. Stay tuned and I hope you enjoy this project!
