a photolook at poverty at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Posted on 12 January 2009



Nope. Dun get me wrong! I’m no longer at Brazil! Was browsing some old archives, and saw some interesting photos.

One of them is this.

The truth is : in Rio de Janeiro, there are lots of people sleeping on the street, or at walkways, or at doors of office buildings.

At late evening/night, when the the workers left their offices (and especially if you work late), you can see them populating the streets with their ‘baggages’. She (in this photo) has a computer monitor, but I doubt it works. Most probably it was collected from nearby trash. Hard to speculate she could earn some hard cash from the monitor though…

One thing that doesn’t need speculation is : live’s tough for her.
