Passersby chat in the sultry evening air as the bustling favela fills at the end of the workday. Blue sky meets azure mountains caressed by distant clouds. In the foreground, a woman in yellow strolls sinuously down the sidewalk; all conversation pauses as she captures every eye. Balancing a can of water on her head, she wriggles provocatively for her viewers. Ezequias uses hot tropical hues for an urban scene that elicits a knowing smile.
