Book Preview: The Brazilian Dream

Over the last six months I’ve been traveling throughout Brazil to photograph Brazilian youth for a new, upcoming book. ‘The Brazilian Dream’ is a portrayal of the rising new generation Brazilians, with focus on their dreams and desires. We’ve made a huge, qualitative research in four Brazilian cities; São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Recife and Porto Alegre.

The final report will include 25 case studies of ‘transformers’ – young people from all social groups, who are working passionately to improve their country. The research is made by BOX1824, and the report will later be part of a bigger, more extensive research on youth culture and consumer behavior across the Emerging Markets called The BRIC Project.

However, its spectacular rise in the past few years as an emerging economic superpower is not sudden. It is the results of continuous reformations. Just few years ago, Brazil was considered to be a country of soccer, samba and rainforest. But after the international financial crisis, there came a sudden change in this popular perception. Global community begins to treat it at par with India and China, who are ushering a tectonic shift in the current global economic system. (more…)
