Anjos Proibidos

Overview

Anjos Proibidos grew out of a project that Cabral began in the late 1980s and which became the subject of two shows in São Paulo art galleries in 1987 and 1989. Cabral's "anjos" came from a variety of backgrounds.

Overview

Anjos Proibidos grew out of a project that Cabral began in the late 1980s and which became the subject of two shows in São Paulo art galleries in 1987 and 1989. Cabral's "anjos" came from a variety of backgrounds. Cabral discovered one of his most beautiful models, Lady Milena, age 12, selling pasties on the street in São Paulo; Priscila, 13, is the daughter of a photographer and a publicist; and Licia was an aspiring model. Regardless, Cabral approached his subjects in the same unaffected way: &#34My photographs are very simple. I treat the works delicately, with a subtle eroticism, not like the type of photos that you would see in Playboy," says Cabral. &#34The girls, as they are portrayed in my book ... exist only for a few fleeting moments in front of my camera."

In saying this, Cabral does not mean that his models are utterly devoid of sensuality. Rather, they are &#34angels" because they do not appear to be of the world--the adult world--in which they have been captured. Instead they inhabit a realm of sensuality that is still in the process of becoming. They are &#34forbidden" because having been fleetingly captured, they must be freed again to return to that realm to which they belong.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
A successful fashion photographer living and working in Sao Paulo and Florianopolis, Brasil, Fabio Cabral got his start in 1981 in a large Brasilian corporate advertising firm. As it was fashion and female beauty, not cars and consumer goods, which motivated Cabral to become a photographer in the first place, he quickly moved out on his own. In 1985 he began showing his works exploring female sensuality in Sao Paolo galleries and established his own agency. He is now one of the most in-demand photographers in Brasil and counts among his clients many actresses and models, as well as magazines such as Vogue, Marie Claire and Elle. Anjos Proibidos was first published in 1991 by Itamaraty Grafica e Editora in an edition of 500. The first edition contained 24 of the images included here.

What People Are Saying

Luiz Carlos Barreto
The photographs are of a high sensibility&#8211in the handling of light, and above all the capturing of ambient light. You can see clearly the intent of the photographer not to harm the subject of the work by introducing anything artificial. [Anjos] is an absolutely original work and unique in the panorama of Brasilian photography. (Luiz Carlos Barreto, Brasilian film producer and cinematographer, twice-nominated for Oscars for best foreign film)
