Book : Encruzilhadas fotográficas of Marcel Gautherot

In Stock

From the unpublished photographs of the Frenchman Marcel Gautherot portraying the Bahia capoeira wheels of the 1940s and 1950s, the author discusses this cultural manifestation of African roots investigating its place in that context. It is the symbolic dimension of the bodies that gyrate in the wheel, its language, its statements and its narratives that stand out.

Who were the people, spaces and situations portrayed in the images? What was the strength that kept its practitioners resilient against all the repression they suffered? The rites and ancestry carried by capoeira are recognized for their aesthetic, ethical and political value.
