Photographer June Canedo has documented some of the real beach babes of Brazil’s beaches in her recent photographic series- Brazilian Girls. With so much high profile attention now devoted to the country in light of the 2014 World Cup coverage, the highly edited image of the country can perhaps be seen to have suggestively belied a truth of poverty and corruption that continues to prevail.
However in her vibrant imagery, Canedo manages to show the country’s citizens from a diverse, uncompromised viewpoint that also captures the vivacious and dynamic attitudes Brazil is renowned for.
