"The book is an exciting mix of architectural shots inside favelas, unexpected still lifes, curious observations, and portraits of local residents. (...) Land of Black Milk is Moshammer‘s personal vision of the city, taken as an outsider open to observing and exploring beyond the obvious themes of stunning beaches, beautiful women, and spectacular carnivals. She mixes fragments of the dreamy mood of Rio with hints of its present problems of violence, inequality and discrimination. The noticeable placement of the text prominently adds another layer to the interpretation of the place. 'Rio de Janeiro is not so much one city as different worlds. Multiplied realities of one place and the space in between. A two-ness, two warring ideals in one body with an inherently split personality. The two-ness of a land, vulnerable and powerful at the same time.' The visual narrative is elusive and poetic, presenting the city as the complex co-existence of multiple realities."
