    A aldeia Tenondé-Porã, em Parelheiros, extremo sul de São Paulo, abriga cerca de 900 índios tupis guaranis. As casas variam entre as feitas de tijolo e cimento, construídas pela Funai e pelas feitas de taipa, pertencentes ás famílias que preferem cultivar as raízes indígenas. entre tantas pessoas, estava a família de Yracema, que se destacava pelas crianças ruivas (sim, índios ruivos) e de expressivos olhos cor de mel.

    There are about 900 guarani indians living at a tribe in Parelheiros, extreme south of Sao Paulo, Brazil. These indians are forced to live in dangerous conditions. Some of them live in small villages like this one, with no electric power at all. Others live on road-sides, or in overcrowded reserves and all of them face malnutrition, poor health and alcoholism.

    Yracema lives with her green eyes children (something very rare among indians) with more 40 other indian families. Her husband has commited suicide one year ago, only two months after her younger child was born. According to Brazil’s Health Ministry, 56 Guarani Indians committed suicide in 2012, although the actual figures are believed to have been higher but may not have been reported.

      Esta fotografia lembra-me uma outra tirada por uma fotógrafa americana (cujo nome não me recordo) que retrata uma mãe e os seus filhos, no exodo para Oeste originado pela crise americana de 1929. Também nesta fotografia se encontra condensada todo o sofrimento e a ausência de perspectivas de futuro que a vida que estas pessoas são obrigadas a viver estampa nas suas faces.

      I like your portraits! This one stood out for the three faces and the fade to the back. And the colour is again, brilliant. It doesn't look sepia or black and white or full colour, making it different.
