The beach, according to Julio Bittencourt, is a place of national identity

RAMOS 08

Julio Bittencourt grew up between Sao Paulo and New York. His main interest is to, through different stories, investigate the relationship between man and his environment. His works have been exhibited in museums and galleries around the world, and published in magazines such as Foam Magazine, GEO, Stern, TIME, Le Monde, The Wall Street Journal, Courrier International, C Photo, The Guardian, The New Yorker, Esquire, French Photo, Financial Times, Los Angeles Times, The Huffington Post, LFI and Leica World Magazine, among several others. Bittencourt is the author of two books – ‘In a window of Prestes Maia 911building’ and ‘Ramos’.

About ‘Ramos’:

The beach is a playground where people can be themselves: they sun-bathe, gossip, swim, picnic and purchase all manner of goods. Countries display their national characteristics on the beach, adding to the delight of this theatre. If you are in Mexico, people bathe wearing tee shirts; on a British beach we have drizzle and stripey deck chairs; and on Spanish playas you can watch the morning perambulations of the over 50s along the stretch of sand at the water’s edge.

I love photographing people. Best of all, I love photographing people on beaches. Beach photography has become a great tradition within photographic culture, comparable in one sense to street photography. Being such a fan of beach photography myself, I always enjoy seeing other peoples’ beach photos.
