Rogerio Reis is a distiguished brazilian photojournalist. He is the founder of Brazil's first national photo bank and was awarded the national prize for photodocumentary in 1999. He has exhibited worldwide and his two series, 'Carnival on Canvas' and 'Man/Machine - Train Surfers', were poweful critical successes. Carnival on Canvas is a particular favourite of mine; somewhat of a Dianne Arbus feel of freaks and facade, all medium format black and white shots of semi-composed characterizations.
