Alexandro Adds is a Rio de Janeiro native whose work seeks to highlight “the voice of the people.” Adds’ latest project is a fashion editorial celebrating Carnival, an annual festival marking the beginning of Lent. Heavily influenced by Afro-Brazilian culture, Carnival is famous for it’s elaborate costumes and samba rituals, and also for the way it seems to bring the whole region joy.

Adds’ project is bursting with color, and features exuberant models, dancing or otherwise having the time of their lives, transporting you right into the heart of the near week-long festivities. “This is the melody of a happy Brazil,” Adds explains.
