In the photographer's words: "Best friends Roger and Janderson play in their hometown Ponta de Areia, BA, Brazil, during summer break. I was in the region interviewing for my dissertation. This photo portraits friendship for me: good friends can literally lift you up! It also reminds me what my dissertation work is really about: making possible that places like Ponta de Areia can continue to exist so good friends can play!"
