Andre Damião is an editorial lifestyle photographer whose work has always focused on the grit of everyday life. But grit has never taken away from the elegant beauty the artist’s camera captures. The photographer seems keen on dispelling such outdated binaries, and the latest short photo series featuring model Flavia Anastacia is no different. Combating the idea that any color might be too bright for dark skin, Damião proves that melanin makes everything look better in the vibrant series that adorns the model with red and yellow accents.
