Music and Politics Collide in Amanda Moraes’ Photos of Brazil’s Independent Music Scenes| 15 September, 2020
You can always find Amanda Moraes zipping around at the best shows, first taking care of the artists and then, during the show, trying to find the best possible places to take photos of the performance.
Amanda is a cultural producer and has worked for more than ten years as a photographer in projects related to music and art. She considers herself a storyteller through images, seeking to capture in her records the narrative force that each “click” brings. Inspired by places, people and stories, she seeks to register her interests and print her truth through photography.
With this collection of photos she aims to draw a parallel between music and art amid the uncertainties caused by the current political scenario in Brazil. Brazilian music, used no longer as entertainment, but as an instrument of social and political resistance.
