Quilo ? Journal of Photographic Tales from Brasil
“Quilo – Journal of Photographic Tales from Brazil” is the first ever publication of its kind, focusing solely on photographic projects created in Brazil. The 300-page magazine features over 40 photographers, visual artists, and short story writers from Brazil. Edited and self-published by University of Hartford Alumni, photographer and creative director, Mico Toledo and designed by design agency Porto Rocha in NY, the publication shines a light on the rich and diverse photographic talent and stories coming from within the borders of such a monumental country. “Quilo”’s ambitious attempt is to widen the photographic canon, to include a wide range of artistic voices and stories from Brazil, championing unseen stories from within the country, under threat from the previous 4 years of a right-wing conservative government, while also making these stories accessible to a wider audience in the United States, Europe and beyond.
Divided into regions of Brazil, the publication flows like a road trip through the many arteries that criss-cross the lengths of this monumental country; its three hundred pages take us on an odyssey from the far reaches of the North to the deepest South of Brazil. Unfolding through the eyes and minds of forty-four contemporary photographers and writers, the publication travels through towns and cities, mangroves and beaches, meets locals and encounters the often invisible tales this land holds, shining a light on counter-narratives, and turning them into powerful weapons against intolerance and bigotry.
