That Brazilian Couple and photographer Elton Davel hosted a cultural weekend of ecological responsibility, with a photographic exhibition and a dance performance, for a great turnout.

On October 22 and 23, 2022, the exhibition of “The Four Elements” took place, a series of 26 works by the Brazilian photographer Elton Davel. In the project, the dance couple Ana Luiza Luizi and Junio Enrique, aka That Brazilian Couple, appear in movements that symbolize Air, Earth, Water, and Fire.

The exhibit took place in the Chelsea neighborhood, a few meters from the High Line Park. The region is known for being home to the largest and most important art galleries in Manhattan.

In an effort to celebrate the connection between human beings and nature, the series features dancers representing the four elements with dance.

The three artists sign the project which also includes the launch of a book, with the same name. The publication, in bilingual format, brings details of the creative process, the trajectory of the creators, and their motivations. The artists also produced a mini-documentary with behind-the-scenes footage of the project and exclusive interviews.


For a more complete experience, some works will also be released in NFT and the gallery will be available in Metaverse. Part of the proceeds from the sale of the works will go to indigenous peoples in Latin America.

Dancers Ana Luiza Luizi and Junio Enrique started working with content production for the internet just over a year ago. The couple’s social networks add up to over two million followers and that’s why they want to use digital platforms in favor of the cause they believe in.

“Our voice can positively influence society. Indigenous peoples are increasingly vulnerable, especially in urban and industrialized regions,” Junio Enrique said. “We as artists, by promoting the indigenous cause, also raise discussions about the conservation of natural resources and environmental preservation.”
