The Beautiful Horizon

“Our ‘contract’ with the kids is direct and uncomplicated. We just told them that we believed they could take great pictures and that people would be interested in their lives”.

The Beautiful Horizon

The Beautiful Horizon was an acclaimed project, documenting a long-term collaboration between young people living on the streets of Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and artists Julian Germain, Patricia Azevedo and Murilo Godoy. The project demonstrates how photography has been used to offer a platform to the socially and economically excluded, enabling them to express their ideas, thoughts and feelings. The installation includes an archive of photographs produced over sixteen years, plus street posters and other material examining the process through which the work has developed during a period of unprecedented economic expansion in Brazil. This project is presented in partnership with Autograph and forms part of the 2012 Brighton Photo Biennial.
