posing for photographer frederico mendes



Gazelle by Frederico Mendes (low resolution)


This past month I had the honor of posing for the lenses of the amazing Brazilian photographer Frederico Mendes. The shoot took place in Rio de Janeiro, few days after I attended the launch of his book Arpoador.
Frederico Mendes is a fashion photographer who also has crossed over to photo journalism; he has lived in Paris and New York. Besides working for all the major magazines like Marie Claire, Vogue, Elle, Time, Stern … Frederico became very known in Brazil when he worked at Manchete – one of the most famous Brazilian magazines ever – photographing all the most important facesĀ in Brazil and international pop stars visiting the country. So, it is needless to say how amazing I felt, especially after seeing how great the photos turned out.
