David Alan Harvey book (based on a true story) captures the vibrancy and cultural energy of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Raw, sensual, fresh, real, passionate, sexy and two years in the making, Harvey’s photographs span the strata of society giving an insight into the lives of the rich, the glamorous, the poor, the humble and the everyday.
(based on a true story) is Harvey’s very personal journey into the novella, a mystery tale that is not about Rio but set in Rio. A tale told in an entirely new and innovative way, in 3D. A book that lets the reader play a part of it and remodel the story, interacting with the characters present throughout the book. A script more than a book, it is an analogue interactive experience. A book that can be read conventionally and unconventionally, it is a puzzle for the reader to try and piece together.
Rio is one of Harvey’s favorite cities, and this series melds documentary with myth. Despite years of research, it is a representation of just one night in Rio; a personal and semi fictionalized account that expresses a feeling about the place rather than explaining it. Harvey’s intention is to make you “feel it, be it, live it”.
