Where are the Women?




AZUL SERRA
Presented by Braziliality

Braziality is a not-for-profit organization that supports and shows Brazilian Artists or Artists inspired by Brazil. Last night they showcased the Brazilian photographer/film maker Azul Serra's work in Camden Town. Azul Serra is a vibrant energetic young man with lots on his mind. His photography that in this case borders to journalistic photography is a turn for him. But now, when a lot of journalistic pictures are considered as Art, he is right on time.

"Where are the Women?" Azul wondered when he was photographing the stream of men crossing the Libyian border to Tunisia. There are men everywhere, as we can see on the pictures, were the women hidden? An interesting question.

While Azul Serra got to have this experience of being in a War zone he also got to feel the fright of being a war journalist and what they constantly go through to capture the events. At a certain time the journalists said, we will have to leave Lybia it is becoming to dangerous. Then the rebels pleaded and said that "Then we will be all on our own and we will be forgotten!". They negotiated that they would be more protected and the journalists stayed on, bravely. 



These photos are all taken this year at the end of February beginning of March.

  2. Nice work and big question. By looking at photos of the events in the various countries concerned by "revolutions" I had the same question in mind!!!
