Mara Kuya is the first photobook by the Brazilian-American artist June Canedo. It shares the complex and deeply personal story of the artist’s family, split between Brazil, the country where she was born, and the United States, the country where her family moved when she was just nine years old. Canedo knew from early on that she wanted to share this story, and through her intimate photobook, she puts a spotlight (from the inside) on the rarely seen lives of immigrant families. It’s another example of the changing forces of agency in contemporary photography, of people who were once overlooked now telling their own stories.
