French photographer Benoit Fournier immortalizes the beauty of Brazilian beaches in his latest series. More specifically, Fournier attempts to convey the relationship the citizens have with water, which is undoubtedly an important part of life for the Brazilian population.
Within the photos, the focal point is sometimes the water; other times it’s the passers-by strolling along the sand. Either way, each image is imbued with a voyeuristic quality, as we become privy to the daily life of the Brazilian people. However, by far the most mind-boggling aspect of the photos is the sheer quantity of people on the beach at any given moment.
If you live in an often-freezing country (like me,) it’s fascinating to consider that beach-going of this magnitude is a regular, day-to-day activity for some.
