feature: check out brazilian photographer luiz claudio’s new editorial series ‘aurum’

February 17, 2016

Brazilian photographer Luiz Claudio’s latest editorial series ‘AURUM’ aims to capture the tropical essence of the city of Rio de Janiero. Instead of using the somewhat cliché tropical Brazilian backdrops of white sand beaches, Claudio opted to use clean whites with pops of warm color and a beautiful, mixed-heritage Brazilian model. Check out ‘AURUM’ down below and ‘like’ Claudio’s Facebook page and follow him on Instagram.
