January 7, 2016

Check out the work of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil-based photographer Jeferson Lima. Much of Lima’s work documents the unique culture, beauty, and authenticity of Black Brazilian Bainana women. “The state of Bahia has the largest concentrations of blacks out of Africa and that’s so amazing to us,” Lima tells AFROPUNK. Many of his pictures feature model Luma Nascimento.

Take a look at some of his work below and more here.
