Flo Ngala on photographing one of America’s biggest Caribbean carnivals.
After spending the day with fellow carnival-goers, Flo accumulated over 2,500 pictures. From there, the photographer edited and cut down her collection to the strongest 30 images she felt best told the story of the day’s events. These include shots of men and women proudly performing in ornate costumes, and images of grand parades that illustrate the day’s dynamic atmosphere. “The series does not only bring me back to my roots as a photographer,” Flo tells It’s Nice That. “It also gives me an opportunity to, as a woman and as a person of colour, to capture events in my community and abroad, in an honest and authentic way.” The vast majority of carnival-visitors were women, she goes on to explain, but the number of female photographers documenting the celebrations were an obvious minority.

It's simply a spectacular event. Some heartbreaking impressions of Carnival in Rio with costumes to die for if you're a real carnivalista. Watch and weep.
