Wearing a ball cap, hoop earrings, shorts and roller skates, a modern young woman listens to an impromptu concert by street musicians. Music fills the air at Ipanema Beach where a cyclist shows his skill and a hang glider soars overhead. Inspired by Vin√≠cius de Moraes e Toquinho's 1960s song 'The Girl from Ipanema,' Claudia Thomaz celebrates the woman's free spirit in this iconic Rio de Janeiro neighborhood.
Titled 'A nova garota de Ipanema' in Portuguese.
