Saudade da Bahia

Stephanie Foden

After living in the northeastern state of Bahia, Brazil for the last four years, 2016 RMG Exposed-winner Stephanie Foden was captured by the mysterious beauty of Salvador, Brazil. And she captured it back. According to the artist, “the colours, the light, and the people of Bahia stand out even in a country as culturally charged as Brazil.” Saudade da Bahia successfully documents through still images the liveliness and complexity of this African land outside of Africa.
