Tapuicacas by Angela Sairaf
Discover the Secret Lives of the Masked Figures
Brazilian photographer Angela Sairaf has spent the past few years traveling the world in search of Tapuicacas. With their bright, colorful masks, the Tapuicacas are hard to miss; with their plain clothes and pedestrian activities, they are unusually relateable. Of the elusive figures, Sairaf says, “Tapuicacas are closer than you think... their lives are top-secret and they never reveal their true identity.”
“I am lucky enough that some of them agreed to be photographed.” Indeed, see more photographs from the series below.
