Andre Camara Joins John Hegarty for Electric Glue's Sacrifice and Success Podcast



Andre discusses how the sacrifices of 17 year photographer inspired the film City of God 

Andre Camara Joins John Hegarty for Electric Glue's Sacrifice and Success Podcast

In this month’s episode of Electric Glue’s podcast Sacrifice and Success, John Hegarty speaks to photographer Andre Camara, the inspiration for Fernando Meirelles’ 2002 film City of God. 

Not only had Andre’s amazing story of photography in the favelas been captured in a huge film but his journey has taken him across the World capturing some of the most iconic and sometimes tragic moments in recent years from the 2016 Rio Olympics to the London 7/7 bombings. 

Through his sacrifice to his work and later the life altering decision to give up his leg, Andre discusses with John Hegarty how risk and reward are symbiotic. 

“Andre’s story is one of risk and reward. Doing nothing or following the crowd has never been an option for him. We found his story incredibly inspiring and his outlook on life truly resonated with us and our approach to media.” Darius Karbassioun, managing director, Electric Glue. 

In collaboration with Soho Radio, the podcast uncovers the stories of people from the broader creative community, including singer-songwriter Joel Culpepper, TV presenter Gail Porter and event and conflict photographer Andre Camara. Sacrifice is something we’ll all have to contend with - this series examines how we can each overcome it.
