This Stern assignment is a pearl and I'm very very happy to share it with you. The story had finally reached 10 pages publications instead of the 6 preview at the beggining.
Holy Cow is a project I'm developping since 2013. Stern assigned me to take the Story into a second step, giving me total freedom to create the Story as I've been doing before. And the result is here!
I was also fortunate to have the great writer Jan Christoph Wiechmann together in this adventure.
Holy Cow touches an important issue of our actuality, our rising consumption of meat and how Brazil occupies the place of biggest meat exportator due to its deep control of genetics manipulations. This is a story about the very beggining of the meat international alimentary chain and shows the business ambience of who decide the quality of the meat we eat in the world.
I'm looking for publications out of Germany. If you are interested, please, contact me by mail.

Delighted to announce that Carolina Arantes is the winner of the 2017 Firecracker Grant, awarded to a female photographer born or residing in Europe to assist with a documentary project.Through a combination of self-initiated fundraising and with the generous support of Genesis Imaging, the Grant fund is a minimum financial contribution of £2,000 plus credit of professional printing, mounting and framing services from Genesis Imaging. 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.
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!

Happy to have a Holy Cow image at GEO June 2016 Kosmos double page section ! Holy Cow is a project about the Brazilian cattle farmers who decide the quality of meat we eat in the world.

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.
First Generation is an ongoing project about the first generation of Afro-French women in France. Born from African parents immigrated to France, they are the first French citizens issued from both cultures.
Patrick Viveret is a French philosopher that questions our contemporary life in consumerism, apropriation of time and ecology. The portraits I've done for M Magazine / Le Monde is now online with the interview. I suggest the reading. M. Viveret is presenting us the possibility of chosing how to live the time and how to pass it posivelly, with conscience.
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.
