Brazilian born, São Paulo based photographer Gabriel Wickbold
is 27 years old and self taught, ”I picked up some tips from my
photographer friends, and made a research laboratory in my studio,” he
recalls. “Every day I discover how to do different kinds of lighting.
But for me, it’s about much more than the perfect lighting setup. It’s
about the perfect vibe.” His bright color palette and passionate sexual
energy scream the joy of our Brazilian nationality, Brazil is pure
rawness with a sense of pride in the artistic half naked bodies
scattered throughout. There is not much puritan thinking down there, and
Wickbold’s wet, sticky series showcases it really well!
You have to take risks. We will only understand the miracle of life fully if when we allow the unexpected to happen. Paulo Coelho (Brazilian writer)
