Mar+Vin is a duo, formed by Marcos Florentino and Kelvin Yule. With backgrounds in Graphic Design and Journalism, the two were first a couple, and then joined forces o become a photographic powerhouse. In their work beauty is certainly at the forefront, but that’s not to say that it’s shallow, quite the contrary – most of the couple’s work has a strong political under layer.
Through their beautiful images they don’t shy away from commenting on issues such as racism and LGBT rights, an act of resistance during this Brazil’s current ultraconservative government.
