Capturing Brazilian Sounds with @brasilmostratuacapa

Layana Leonardo (@layleonardo) and Antônio Adriano (@antonyadriano) originally set out to recreate Brazilian vinyl records through portrait photography. “But then, we realized we could do something more relevant, something where other people might even participate,” says Antônio. Layana’s passion for music and Antônio’s love for photography inspired them to create @brasilmostratucapa, a project where they use Brazilian album covers as faces and also feature submissions from the #sleeveface hashtag. Their creative process is very collaborative: “To portray the cover, we try to find the perfect clothing and venue to take the photographs.” From the beginning, paying homage to Brazilian sounds and visuals was very important. “When we started out, the #sleeveface hashtag was already really popular, but there were almost no photos of Brazilian records,” says Layana, who describes herself as totally addicted to Brazilian music, from the old to the new. “I have a lot of vinyl records, and most of them are Brazilian. It’s very hard to resist nice vinyl records and their beautiful album covers. It really is an addiction!”
