Days before the Corona pandemic shook the UK, creative duo Stefy Pocket and Jake Hunte embarked on a trip to Rio de Janeiro to meet the Cariocas (People of Rio).

We decided to keep a natural flow attitude to this, setting out each day with a few items of styling and camera to shoot. Taking to the beaches and streets of Rio, we casted local boys, vendors, families and groups of friends. Jake gave each person an item to be authentically styled with their own garments. Stefy documented this, capturing the diversity of the Cariocas and their warm bold characters, showcasing them in their natural habitat - the beach!
