Once again we bring attention to Ana Lira, a photographer and artist from Recife, in the Brazilian State of Pernambuco. Lira has has moved from civil engineering to journalism and later to photography.

In May 2717, Lira’s aesthetic critique is once again in tune with the highly troubled Brazilian political climate.
