Mario Cravo Neto, Lord of the Head
Mario Cravo Neto, Brazilian photographer, died last Sunday at 62. His work has a strong religious content and he was a master in showing the human body both powerful and fragile. I am sad -his work never failed to touch me. Spiritual, mystical, erotic, his images composed a beautiful portrait of the people of his region, Bahia.

He didn’t have a website, but artnet is a good source for images.
