DSC 0021+copy Moradores da Rua They live on the street, under bridges. To make a living they clean the street, organize all the trash of others and sell it. Due to the financial crisis on this moment, they make only half the money they used to. Just not enough to keep them alive.

I made this photos in the place they live. I went to them, made a connection. In the beginning they treated me hostile, I entered their world. When I got to know the, I could explain what I wanted to do: show the world that they are there, human beings. When they understood they organised everything so I could make pictures of them.

Lost in the city

2006 118 Lost in the city  They seem lost in the city, so many people living out on the streets in São Paulo, sitting walking, sleeping eating,
in parks, in doorways, on banks, under the viaducts and simply in the middle of the sidewalks.

“They just don’t want to work.”

2006 0551 They just dont want to work.“They just don’t want to work.” I still hear it said about homeless by many, in Europe, in South America, in Asia.

In São Paulo you can see many homeless people on the street, collecting trash and pulling their carts through the
town and traffic. When we went with them through the city we noticed how many people are working this way and help
clean the city.
