I was invited to photograph a young artist, Vinicius Damião, and my weapon of choice was a Canon AE-1 and a 50mm lens — which has been my beloved gear for the past few years. On the process, picking the film was the easiest part, since I wanted vibrant colors, high contrast, intense saturation and grains as outcomes.

Lomography X-Pro 200 seemed just perfect for this project, and I truly believe I was right because the best results turned out to be the ones I shot with it. The shoot happened in a sunny afternoon, at the top of a building in São Paulo, Brazil.

If you haven’t heard anything about Vinicius Damião yet, I’ll tell you: he’s a 29 year-old Brazilian singer-songwriter who has recently released his first single.

The single, "Onde a Poeira Pousa" ("Where Dust Lands") has a compelling underground pop beat. Besides talking about the ups and downs of being in a big city, there is a mix between “collective pulse and individual melancholy” in the music video. "Onde a Poeira Pousa" is one of the songs of the EP he’s going to release on late January 2018.

The Billboard Magazine Brasil has published an article about him in Portuguese. If you're on Facebook, you can follow Vinicius here.
