GH, Gal and Hiroshima
Dates2019 - Ongoing
- Location Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Around the age of 10, returning from school, Hiroshima was stoned on the street where they lived. Hiroshima was Rodrigo Pinheiro’s nickname in childhood. Rodrigo was born on the same day as the bomb. They had an ambiguous appearance and a body that navigated between genders.
Gal started wearing small shorts as a teenager, then purses. Today, the high heels and Gal’s non-binary identity are often a reason for the family’s imbalance.
The stones in the photos were collected in Flamínia Street, Vila da Penha, RJ, where Hiroshima lived. The heels are also real ones. Gal was born on the day of the american president who launched the bomb.
