Modern architecture, fashionable beaches, poor favelas, ancient rainforests, high mountains: Brazil is a land of contradictions and vast expanses. The best mode of transport for travelling without your own car between the large cities Brasília, São Paolo and Rio de Janeiro is the bus, since there are few train connections in the world’s fifth-largest country. Street photographer Gustavo Minas took to the road. His camera captured magical moments of urban life in Brazil.
