In 1940, the photographer Genevieve Naylor and her companion Misha Reznikoff, an artist, were sent to South America by Nelson Rockefeller’s Office of Inter-American Affairs (OIAA), the wartime agency organized to cultivate Latin American support for allies. Brazil was their destiny and her mission was to create an image from Brazil to USA audience. Her photos depict Brazil during those years in considerable detail enlarging the official purpose of her visiting by a really concerned approach to Brazilian reality. On her return from Brazil, Naylor had a successful onewoman show at New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in 1943. This article discuss the narrative created by Genevieve Naylor's photos during hertravels throughout Brazil.
