Beautiful shots. Love the innocense that these children embody. I see you have a wonderful time over there, although it is not too sunny looking at the last series of pictures...

You have caught a great moment in time.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:04 AM) : 

is there anything better than a child's smile? especially when experiencing pure joy. great shots. beautiful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:27 AM) : 

sart, you made my day with these shots. i never engage in this but i really have to this time: the little boy in turquoise blue looks like a young RONALDO (muscle structure is clear to see although he is so young). love it! and they are so happy, it's wonderful to live vicariously through these boys if even just for a moment.

Love the way the one running away has his little fingers crossed!

Wonderful! So unselfconscious & full of the joys of living.

Oh.. so cute! The boy in the bright blue shorts looks like a mini-ronaldo! :) So alike!

Georgeous pictures - you really have caught magic moments. It makes me so happy to look at them - thank you!


Blogger monique said ... (11:45 AM) : 

Turquoise trunks kid is so funny looking (in a good way). Like a little man. Look at the muscles. Clearly not a kid who sits in all day playing nintendo.

And that last shot is just joy.

Thanks, Sart.

Always great results with beach shots, sun over there, lots of wind down here at the coast...

Anonymous ilay said ... (2:16 PM) : 

made me remember the advice you gave on capturing the moment and inspiration on the photo shoot you did with your lovely daughters on the beach.

wonderful photos !

i think you can spend rest of your life in rio.


Anonymous AnonymousJK said ... (2:19 PM) : 

Ah to be so young and carefree... It is truly a beautiful time in our lives that once gone, can never be recaptured. Thanks to you, this particualr moment in these boy's lives is forever captured in celluloid.


Blogger Dene said ... (2:30 PM) : 

I'm jealous, I really wish I was in Rio tanning and frolicking in the beach right now.


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (2:36 PM) : 

You are amazing! You can take pictures of perfect moments!


Blogger Johanne said ... (3:43 PM) : 

beautiful shots!


Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (3:57 PM) : 

How cute! They look to be practising capoeira in the 2nd picture.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:45 PM) : 

THIS is what i call happiness!!!


Blogger anton said ... (4:58 PM) : 

wow, there's no one on the beach! that's insane for Ipanema. i have to say that Brazilians from all walks of life are the classiest people I have ever met and you can see it in all the beautiful photos. SAUDADE PRA BRASIL! try and visit some Choro Samba halls and street samba in Lapa if you can for some great moments and amazing music.


Anonymous Ana said ... (5:29 PM) : 

Ohh God!
I'm brazilian, but from São Paulo. My city is amazing, but I have to admit that people in Rio de Janeiro is beautiful and has a greeeeat body! What a beach does to a city, right?


Anonymous Marcus said ... (6:08 PM) : 

These photos are the most beautiful you have taken. Incredible, man!


Blogger -h of candid cool said ... (6:24 PM) : 

so young and carefree, i miss those days.

whenever i see your rio shots i wish is was there.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:50 PM) : 

Beautiful pictures! however I don't think these boys are a picture of innocence, more-so energy. The boy in blue has a very knowing face. I think it's amazing that children's personalities are formed so early and that they sometimes posses more knowledge than when they grow up and become effected by everything. Lovely


Anonymous Mike said ... (6:59 PM) : 

wow even the little kids are jacked in rio.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:13 PM) : 

I'm in love. These happy little boys made me smile.


Blogger Paulandre said ... (8:23 PM) : 

I love this place...that beach...I'm luck 'cause is near my town. That's really the atmosphere to 'dolce far miente'


Blogger The Calvin Show said ... (8:36 PM) : 

The boy in the blue reminds me of myself when I was a kid! Haha. I've yet to run across a beach in Rio though. : (

Blogger Jamie Watson said ... (10:36 PM) : 

ohhhhhh this series is one of my favorites ever! thank you! joy.


Blogger pretty kitty publishing said ... (1:10 AM) : 

Thank you! This shot made my day. Life is for the living!


Blogger brand 'em' said ... (1:20 AM) : 

After a trip to NYC, I have renewed interest in fashion and your site. Keep up the great work.


Anonymous Tobey said ... (1:43 AM) : 

lovely images...


Blogger Kanani said ... (2:01 AM) : 

Those are fabulous. I've gotten more joy out of imagining you capturing these shots & smiling at the boys. All in all, you've pulled this viewer into the shot.


Blogger caramimi said ... (2:10 AM) : 

cute!!! the boys are adorable. you really captured how much fun they are having. and can i just say... the light in rio is beautiful.


Anonymous minnie said ... (3:44 AM) : 

yep,there ARE better things in the world than fashion...

At last! Among all the pictures from Rio, these are the only ones that show a bit of what Brazil really feels like...
It's a pity he hasn't taken pictures of people in the city, just by the sea... The beach is only 10% of what Rio is!


Anonymous daniel said ... (4:18 AM) : 

Well, the other pictures from Rio are great too, as always... I was just hoping that he could maybe capture a little more of the Brazilian way of living in them. Most of the people look like actors employed by Rede Globo, Brazil's biggest TV broadcaster.

Those are some buff kids! They should set an example for children here in the U.S.


Blogger thirty1seven said ... (7:31 AM) : 

Out to play in rio..boys in bright colorful shorts which contrasts with the natural calm of the environment..

Beautiful and Fun..Lovely Pictures
(and love that blue!)


Blogger nyc/caribbean ragazza said ... (7:53 AM) : 

The second photo reminds me of my cousins playing on the beach in Anguilla.

Lovely photos.

I like that you shoot more than just clothes. It's all connected. The spirit of a place, the people, the clothes, etc.


Blogger Anne Corrons said ... (8:16 AM) : 

It's good to see people with swimming costumes whereas we are wearing coats in Paris!


Anonymous Rebecca said ... (9:06 AM) : 

Those kids are just the cutest!

I'm of the same kind of mind as Anonymous who said "Beautiful pictures! however I don't think these boys are a picture of innocence, more-so energy. The boy in blue has a very knowing face. I think it's amazing that children's personalities are formed so early and that they sometimes posses more knowledge than when they grow up and become effected by everything. Lovely"

That muscular little body speaks of work and I don't mean work out. Some of those kids working on the streets of Rio begin awfully young and lead everything but a carefree life. Yet it is inspiring to witness their ability to let all their worries drop, reclaim some innocence and behave like the kids they really are. Nice shots.


Blogger Fly Girl said ... (10:03 AM) : 

What joyful boys! Children always represent the essence of a culture. I think you captured it here. They are carfefree and playful here but their bodies and faces also reflect the work that they probably do daily. I hope you go to Lapa and show another aspect of Rio too!


Anonymous zuccotto said ... (2:48 PM) : 

Looked up capoeira after the poster's comment - interesting, here's a link -

I love all the Brazil photos, but especially enjoy the ones of the boys and their movements.

I've a fascination for Brazil - always have since I heard about Rio in elementary school a long time ago, but again most recently when I read Death in Brazil by Peter Robb. Also follow some police procedurals set in Brazil.


Blogger Peace in a Time of War said ... (6:33 PM) : 

I see future professional soccer players! LOL

Great job capturing the moment.

This is the true heart and soul of Rio.....


Blogger J. said ... (11:32 PM) : 

Ah this is too cute! I love how their happiness is so vivid and real. I want to go to rio so I can play on the beach too :(


Blogger Good Taste said ... (12:08 AM) : 

adorable! I love his haircut too.


Blogger cassaundra said ... (3:36 AM) :

love these sort of posts.
gosh ... that beach is really amazing, isn't it?


Anonymous effie said ... (7:48 AM) : 

soo cute! thank you for capturing genuine happiness. :)

The innocence of children. These photographs reminds me of my own childhood growing up in the Caribbean.
Great shots of children with joyful personalities and enjoying themselves, as all children should.


Blogger .lysse said ... (10:37 AM) : 

this is so brazil to me. obrigada o senhor!


Blogger The Dandelion Tamer said ... (2:12 PM) : 

I love the solo of the boy in the blue trunks. The sand, crawling up his left leg, makes him appear to have risen from underground. An adorable, myth-like Poseidon-boy.


Blogger southerngentinL.A. said ... (4:04 PM) : 

Ahhh the good life! The world would be a much better place if adults could feel this way just once a week!

Ahh to me young and carefree again. Beautiful shots.

Leaving aside the "romance" of this pictures...what I really like about them, is the little turquoise boy with a matching little turquoise wrist band!...that's cool!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:42 AM) : 

Crazy shots, on my screen, the scenery is one tone. I love the pop of swim-suits.
