Multi-disciplinary artist Ricardo Imperatore, uses only what he calls a “Jurassic” iPad and an iPhone 6 to tell the story of Gamboa, Little Africa, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. His street photography, shot off-hand and “in the midst,” is the opposite of the lush images of rain forests and samba dancers in the travel brochures that condition the sense that most Northerners have of Brazil. His photos and first-person commentary describe the failure of an experiment in urban renewal, his attempt to make a home and studio in Gamboa, and the memory of the neighborhood that others have since forgotten.
