For a few magical weeks, Wallpaper* shifted operational HQ to Brazil. We had a single aim: to produce as true a portrait as possible of an extraordinary country at an extraordinary moment of transition. We saw, shot, talked, walked, taxied, ate, drank, danced, and now our Born in Brazil issue has finally hit the shelves.
