June 23rd

Jefferson may just be the coolest teenager in Brazil.  We met him on a remote river in North Bahia State.  My goal was to find traditional crab fisher-women on a sunday morning during a holiday weekend in the laziest beach zone of all of Brazil.  Big surprise, no one was crab fishing.  But Jeff was there.  Standing by his boat with his cousin, who was holding a paddle.  First thing he said was, "I'm a total badass.  Want to photograph me bird hunting from a canoe with an archaic single-shot hunting rifle from the 1930s?"  Maybe I'm paraphrasing a bit but next thing I know he's plucking the feathers of a local Graça bird.  Then he showed us his personal collection of Blue Crabs that he's been fattening up for a special occasion.  Then he started to re-load his rifle and head back to his boat.  Caio Jefferson.  Vai com deus...
