Born in 1924, Ricardo Rangel is a monument of photography who’s critically acclaimed images have been exhibited around the world in major institutions like the Guggenheim Museum in New York. The featured photographs are part of the famous series entitled Our nightly bread, a gripping diary of the Rua Araújo, the historical red lights district of Maputo in the 1960’s.
Mauro Pinto is fifty years younger and his photographs capture the urbanity of Maputo seen through the lens of another generation. His snappy images relate the everyday life of people in the city, still journeying from a time of war to a new life in peace, their aspirations and dreams. Also, much younger than Ricardo Rangel, Mauro Pinto is already a respected photographer with works in important collections and international exhibitions.
