The photographer Meireles Jr. and the singer and composer Flávia Bittencourt unveiled.
Brazil’s culture through their photos and voice respectively
On May 17, New Yorkers will have a chance to learn about one of the most picturesque and amazingly beautiful places in Brazil. The photographer Meireles Jr. and the singer and composer Flávia Bittencourt are bringing to New York a little of the rich and diverse culture of the state of Maranhão through the launch of their latest works, the books “Between Sky and the Earth – Maranhão Image Legacy” e “Supernatural: Impressions about the Lençóis Maranhenses and the Grand Canyon” and the CD/DVD “Leve”, respectively.
The event, which will feature a book signing, photo exhibition and pocket show, will take place at Saphira & Ventura Gallery, Midtown Manhattan, from 7pm to 9:30pm. Although it is a free event, RSVP is necessary (email@example.com)
Meireles Jr. started his career as a photographer in 1995 when he was still a Design senior at the Federal University of Maranhão. Throughout the years since then, he has developed a truly refined technique, just as much as he has earned awards, the recognition from critic experts and, most of all, the respect from the public in general.
The artist has already published five books and he is bringing two of them to New York. “Between Heaven and Earth – Maranhão Image Legacy”, which highlights the natural beauties and the culture of Maranhão, and “Supernatural: Impressions about the Lençóis Maranhenses and the Grand Canyon”, which explores the mysteries of these two geographically different natural paradises so singular by their grandiosity and stunning beauty. This book comes with a 20-minute DVD documentary unveiling the making-of of this project.

The Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship provides academic and professional opportunities to advance the reporting skills of women journalists who focus on human rights and social justice. The Fellowship was created in memory of The Boston Globe correspondent and IWMF Courage in Journalism Award (1998) winner Elizabeth Neuffer, who died while reporting in Iraq on May 9, 2003. In collaboration with Neuffer’s family and friends, the IWMF started this program to honor Neuffer’s legacy while advancing her work in the fields of human rights and social justice.
The Neuffer Fellowship is designed for affiliated or freelance women journalists with at least three years of professional experience in journalism working in print, broadcast, or digital media. All nationalities are welcome to apply but non-native English speakers must have excellent written and verbal English skills in order to fully participate in and benefit from the program. The Fellow will complete research and coursework at MIT’s Center for International Studies and journalism internships at The Boston Globe and The New York Times. The flexible structure of the program will provide the fellow with opportunities to pursue academic research and hone her reporting skills. Past fellows have taken advantage of opportunities to publish work under their byline through various media outlets.
“Elizabeth Neuffer was a courageous reporter for the Globe who was determined to shine a light on injustice wherever she found it, and we continue to be inspired by her example and her work. We’re grateful that the IWMF fellowship in her name has enabled courageous women journalists around the world to carry on that tradition.”
–Linda Pizzuti Henry, Boston Globe Managing Director
