I met this model through one of my street painting friends in Florence, Italy. He does capoiera, a dance, martial arts discipline originated in his native Brazil. When we worked together in the back yard, I asked him to just do some of the dance movements. I asked him to freeze as he was rising from a crouch with his extended hands... that's IT! I love the vulnerability and personal generosity expressed in this pose. Thank you for viewing and sharing!
