Brazil is a country of many facets, many of them largely unknown to the wider world, and Made in Brazil Magazine is taking the opportunity with its eleventh issue to spotlight a city that has long been in the shadow of international hotspots like Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. Shot entirely in Salvador, a city in the coastal Bahia region which served as the country’s first capital, the new edition features—with the exception of the recognizable cover star Marlon Teixeira—exclusively models from the city itself. Newcomer Pietro Baltazar makes his mark with his buzzed and bleached hairstyle, photographed by Philippe Vogelenzang and styled by David Vandewal, who also shot most of the rest issue. Rising photographer Akira Cravo shares a portfolio of recent snapshots from the city, offering a more candid view on the vibrant metropolis. Capturing Salvador’s many sides, from its cobblestone streets to the sun-soaked beach to striking architecture, Made in Brazil takes the opportunity to showcase a less prominent but equally vibrant corner of its native land to a global audience always in search of the new and unexplored.
