ISABEL PINTO presents us yet another kids editorial here on GoSee which she published in HOOLIGANS MAGAZINE. On location in Portugal, she staged William, 12, and Dylan, 8, from the agency Sugar Kids based in Barcelona, and Christina Kapongo took care of styling.
“I grew up in Mozambique, but after the Portuguese revolution, as many other Portuguese African families, I had to move to Portugal. It is where I became a photographer and work mainly in the fashion industry. It has always surprised me how, over the years, the beauty ideal for our clients’ brands has always been white, blonde, blue eyes... The editorial world has opened up over the last years to other races, especially for blacks. But not the commercial world! They are still not daring enough, afraid of losing sales... I do hope to see in my lifetime, a courageous brand that dares to communicate its image in an inclusive way, that sees beauty in our diverse humanity and understands its value as the way to go, to make meaningful changes in the industry,” the photographer tells us.

ISABEL PINTO photographed a fashion editorial for HOOLIGANS MAGAZINE in Lima with young actors who stood in front of the camera for the first time. “While spending more than two months in Peru, I felt the enormous impact of colonial times, still ruling the everyday lives of everyone, both the privileged and underprivileged. The way we perceive beauty as beautiful has become so normalized with skin color and economic status that most of the time, most people cannot recognize it or reflect upon it. These beautiful children come from a very poor background and were cast from a local public school, with parents very suspicious of my intentions as kidnapping happens every day. After the bridge of good intentions had been built and trust started seeding, the parents and kids blossomed in ways I could have never imagined. Annah Segarra did an amazing job of styling in her very special way, inspiring the children with movements and new emotions, as absolutely special as they are.”
