Books to Prove
This photo is part of my project "Wonderful City to Whom?". When we call Rio de Janeiro as The Wonderful City, we forget the thousands of people who are living on the streets and starving to death. Elcio is one of them. He had a supermarket trolley in which he used to carry all his belongings. One day it was taken from him by the police with everything Elcio had. Now he is trying to make some money by selling books in order to recover at least his birth certificate.

I am a 22 years old woman who is passionate about photography and cinema. In December I will finish my degree in Cinema at PUC-Rio with an additional domain in International Politics. Travel and cultural exchange lover, I try to portrait in my photographies people's reality and that is why I am very interested in photojournalism and documentary cinema.
