Label Text:
For the Aftermath series, Muniz invited Brazilian street children to pose as figures they selected from art books. He translated the resulting photographs into drawings using street sweepings from the Rio Carnival. The image we see is a photograph of that intermediary work, a portrait of a vulnerable child, formed from the exquisite, glittering refuse of dust, sequins, and confetti.
