Sunset in Rio de Janeiro

2012-10-16

The Arpoador Rocks in Rio de Janeiro is one of the most beautiful places in the world to watch a breathtaking sunset.

It is located in between Copacabana and Ipanema Beach, and you will have an excellent view of the “two brothers” (Dois Irmãos) – two mountains that are, beside Sugar Loaf and Christ the Redeemer, which are characteristic of Brazil’s most beautiful city.

As the sun sets quite early all year round in Rio, I’d recommend that you look for a comfy place on the rocks by 5.30pm. From there, you can watch the sun disappear behind the “two brothers”.

And as it is fairly warm all year round, you can swim in the sea as well after the sun has set, and end the day with coconut milk and Caipirinha, in one of the many beach bars.

     Inspiring and Daring Women in Contemporary Photography (Part I)

    We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about? Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.

    A Color Remix

    It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.

    Eugenia Loli's Surreal Collages

    In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.
