Overview participating exhibitions
Guaicurus is a world within a world – a prostitution complex in the overwhelmingly Catholic and conservative city Belo Horizonte comprised of 20 buildings, where more than 5000 prostitutes offer sexual services for knockdown prices. Guaicurus has its own culture, with its own codes, religious practices and language: an ‘ecology of desire’ captured in intriguing diptychs by the photographer Castilho Leal Francilins, himself a resident of Belo Horizonte.
Francilins Castilho Leal (Brazil, 1978) describes himself as a photographer-anthropologist: for him, images are a tool for research. He is the chief picture editor for Sagarana Magazine and proprietor-director of the JaguarAssu image bank.
