"The ironing board was already there, but not in front of the flag. I was trying to do an exterior shot but the afternoon was still cold, and Jimmy was reluctant to do the shot outside, on the veranda.

"We walked about in his studio, discussing different ideas for the shot. He even commented on my determination / obsession to get him on that veranda. We took a break, and in between we had a few drinks. It was a relaxed atmosphere. At this point, I drew the board near to the flag. This provoked the scene I later captured. Jimmy decided to iron his pants. I decided he was much hotter than the iron." —Chico Aragão

Chico Aragão has been at the forefront of Brazilian fashion and advertising photography since 1973, when he first moved to São Paulo. Known for his "liberation" of fashion photography from the confines of the study, he was one of the first photographers to adopt the notion that a model should be interesting and photogenic rather than attractive in a way that conforms to society's rigid notions of beauty.

Characterized by spontaneity and a focus on movement, his body of work includes portraits that are characterized by their diversity of subject and eccentricity, as well as eerie nightscapes and heavenly waterscapes. His photographs have appeared in publications such as Elle, L'Uomo Vogue, Stern, Vanity Fair, and Vogue Brasil.Read Less
