Youth by Miguel-Santos Youth by Miguel-Santos

When caught in the headlights, rise up!

Santa Catarina, Brazil.


A quick side note:
Brazil has been under great tension since the nationwide protests started, a couple weeks ago. But it's a hopeful tension. These protests have been mostly peaceful and the country is finally seeing changes which were long overdue. There have been many victims in the protests, which is deeply saddening, but extremely violent images are mostly related to smaller groups in the bigger metropolis, like São Paulo and Rio. Everywhere there's a positive, brotherly vibe - keep in mind that Brazil is almost the size of Europe - and the people are united or uniting. There's still a lot to be done, but already there's a fair amount of hope towards the future of our youth. That's a good start. The fight must go on.

It's happening everywhere:

Thank you for the support!

Hi Miguel - I love this picture and the vision behind it for youth. I am writing to you from Australia, I'm part of an organisation that works to grow resilience and leadership in young people. I was wondering if you would be happy for us to use this image in some of our documents around the course we run? Let me know what you think, feel free to be in touch, naominash@newriver.org.au

best wishes,
Naomi

Beautiful shot, since I used to live in Europe this kind of sight was normal in the twilight hours. The energy from the bikers radiates off the page.

That's such an awesome shot....I had this intense impression of hope when I saw it, like kids enjoying themselves on a Saturday night, biking to the movies and not having to worry about anything....The warm colors really accentuate that feeling. Peppy music should be playing, I think.
Excellent photo! :)

This is an absolutely spectacular capture of a single moment in time, a true 'slice of life' caught through the medium of photography. I especially love that one of the guys riding bikes is mid-air and in the process of a spin; the slight blur really adds to the attention grabbing detail!
