Folio: De Braços Verdes e Olhos Cheios de Asas by Elsa Leydier

Elsa Leydier is a French photographer currently living in Rio de Janeiro. De Braços Verdes e Olhos Cheios de Asas is a folio of work that takes the stereotypical image of the Amazon as seen in brochures and press-releases and challenges the audience to see it as just that – a constructed fantasy.
