Firecracker was established in 2011 by Fiona Rogers to promote women working in photography, through a variety of online features, networking opportunities, and public events.
Note from Carolina Arantes: I'm really happy and honored to share that I am the winner of this year's grant!
Since my beginning in photography, I always respected and admire very much Firecracker grant and it is quite nice the moment one sees itself part of places you aim for. But I'm mostly very happy that the Grant and the project will collaborate to spread the issue again and join a choir of discussions that is already there. That's a very important! point of a documentary work. I would like to add that I feel this is a collective project. Without the confidence and trust of all women directly concerned in the issue, there will be no sense in working on it. Thank you very much, Fiona Rogers and all the jury of Firecracker's Grant!

I'm still in Brazil until mid october working on my ongoing project Holy Cow, about Brazil as one of the main actors in the Meat industry.
Brazil is the biggest country on meat exportation in the world. One among 4 beefs eaten worldwide is from brazilian origin. My aim is to create a panorama, showing who is and what is happening behind the meat we eat.
I have been shooting huge farms in Mato Grosso, important farmers and leaders, among others. And had got authorization to enter one of the most important slaughthauses in the country, what was a very difficult task here.
Holy Cow will be soon completed and I will be delighted to publish this work.
If you have interest on this publication and want to see the final edition, please, do not hesitate to contact.
For any other attention in Brazil, please write me. I'll be back to Paris the 13th October.
Whishing you a great starting week,

I'm very happy that First Generation is also on The New York Times today's news paper.
And it is a real honour for me to have the project together with the newspaper's tribute to the great photographer Mary Hellen Mark, who sadly passed away the last 25th Mai. She was an incredible force for Photography and a source of inspiration for many photographers and, I daresay, women photographers.
Thank you Gaia Tripoli for the beautiful edit.
