Photo of the week: Selaron and a question of seeing in Brazil

Selaron in Rio, Brazil

This week has had a theme of bloody good travel quotes, so we thought we’d add one of our favourites to our photo of the week. We took this picture of the artist Selaron in Rio when interviewing him for our blog If I had a Superpower. True to his artistic temperament, after five questions, he turned away and declared “I am painting now”, and that was that. If you’re ever in Santa Teresa in Rio, don’t miss his spectacular steps, covered in tiles from around the world.

    I love this; the photo almost looks like a painting itself. Amazing colour and texture :)

      Thanks both. He really was an excellent man. There are some photos and an interview on our If I had a Superpower blog. The steps he created are incredible.

Why this is no longer a quest

The word quest has been niggling at me for some time now. Before we left, I was delighted with it....
