Girl Power - Cristina Mittermeier

Like the sea itself, the coast fascinates all of us. This collection is inspired by women and young girls who make their lives on the edge of the ocean, care for their communities, and continue the traditions of ancestors.

Child Play

I love how children are able to lose themselves in their own fantasies and how their imagination is often their best toy. I watched this girl in the Kayapó village of Aukre, play by herself for a long time. I walked right up to her, but she was so completely engrossed in her own game, pretending to be some kind of animal, that she completely ignored me. Sometimes I wish I could get lost in my own head that way.
