Lives & Works in São Paulo, Brazil
MAR+VIN is duo of fashion photographers formed by Marcos Florentino and Kelvin Yule in 2016. Marcus and Kelvin were inspired to unify their respective visions and revolutionise fashion photography in Brazil. Based in Sao Paulo, the two have gained prominence with a new photographic language that explores roots, Blackness and reconstruction of the image of Brazilian beauty in the 21st century. They use beauty as an act of resistance, challenging the racism that still plays a major role in every aspect of Brazilian society, and the discrimination enacted against the nation’s LGTBQ+ community. Mar+Vin has been published in major platforms such as Vogue & Elle Brasil, Kinfolk,The Washington Post, Metal Magazine. Their work has been featured in a number of group shows and fairs, as well as in a solo exhibition in June 2021 "Arte+Fashion+Politica'' at Mario Cohen Galeria in Sao Paulo. Mar+Vin will be presented by Galerie Gomis.
