Mozambican photgrapher Mauro Pinto photographers living spaces in Maputo’s Mafalala quarter. Winner of the BESphoto competition of 2012.

“the series reveals the manner in which the artist gives himself over to the reality of the people who inhabit the spaces portrayed while at the same time conveying an historical and sociological perspective on the Mozambican contemporary reality, seen through this quarter of its capital city. (…) It is striking how the artist uses light to give life to the depicted elements. From colour to the objects themselves, his work carries us into an inhabited reality.”
