Nana Gouvêa em Desastres (Nana Gouvêa in Disasters) is a single topic blog featuring photoshopped images of Brazilian model Nana Gouvêa placed into tragic and disturbing scenes, bearing many similarities to the photoshop meme Disaster Girl. The blog was created in response to a series of photos showing Gouvêa posing in front of damaged cars and buildings caused by Hurricane Sandy in New York City.
On October 30th, Brazilian news site Ego published a series of photos of Brazilian model Nana Gouvêa posing with fallen trees caused by the destruction of Hurricane Sandy in New York City (shown below). The photos were supplemented by an interview with the model who said she enjoyed the storm, since it allowed her to spend several romantic days with her husband, music producer Carlos Keyes. Many people in Brazil found the images to be distasteful, saying Gouvêa appeared to be using the disaster as a backdrop for her own beauty.
The day after the photos were uploaded, the single topic blog “Nana Gouvêa em Desastres” (“Nana Gouvêa in Disasters” in English) launched on Tumblr. Within 24 hours, the blog posted 45 images of the model photoshopped into various tragedies, including the sinking of the Titanic, the Hindenburg disaster and the September 11th attacks.
The same day, a Facebook page titled “Nana Gouvêa em Desastres” was launched, including reposts of many images taken from the Tumblr blog. Within 24 hours, the page accumulated more than 3700 likes. On October 31st, the Internet news blog YouPix published a post titled “Meme Do Dia: Nana Gouvêa Em Desastres,” which mocked Gouvêa’s apparent narcissism and highlighted several photoshopped images of the model. The same day, the story was reported by the internet culture blog the Inquistr and the Huffington Post. On Twitter, Gouvea responded to the attention, retweeting news articles about the photos and the parody blog.

In an interview on November 1st, Gouvea said that she found the photoshopped images humorous and that the photographs should not be seen in a negative light, as she was fully clothed and was not trying to sexualize the disaster. The same day, the entertainment news blog ThunderTreats published a post titled “Brazilian Model Nana Gouvea Turns Wreckage from Hurricane Sandy into Props for Photo Shoot” and the Herald Sun published an article titled “Brazilian Model Nana Gouvea Mocked for Sexy Sandy Photo Shoot.”
