Reina is a series of visually complex portraits depicting Brazilian 'reinas' in full carnival costume. The highly detailed images are typical of Cyril's work, a composition so tight as to eliminate any other surroundings. The location and objects play as much an important part as the reina herself, creating a dazzling, luxurious image.
