Mundos Creados II

Eustáquio Neves

FUTEPOOL

Eustáquio Neves storms the shrines of Brazilian society in his photography. Central to his work is the history of African slaves, from their arrival in Brazil to their incorporation in the society. However, THE Brazilian society does not exist; it is still marked by a great chasm between the rich and poor and the cultural backgrounds of the various population groups. Neves reveals that in social-critical photo works, which often consist of multiple layers, and for which he often manipulates both the negatives and prints. In addition to these strongly symbolic and political photographs, in a number of projects Neves investigates aspects of Brazilian identity more directly. For instance, in the series FUTEPOOL he illuminates the reality behind the almost mythic image that looms up for many when Brazil is spoken of as a football giant. The national sport flourishes primarily in surroundings on the edge of society and in a climate of urban violence.
