      hey man , i am from rio , and your pictures are great !! what kind of treatment do you give to the pictures ?? they look amazing !!!

    2. Gabriel Stefanini 77 months ago | reply

      do you have any idea of the meaning of the signs that the kid is doing with her fingers ?? that is an C and an V those are the initials of the boggest criminal faction , the Red Comando ( Comando Vermelho)
      i guess for most of the people here your picture shows innocence , but for us from rio , we see that this innocence is lost ...

      (sorry for my english)

      thanks a lot gabriel for this precision...
      your city maybe the most beautiful i've seen, but it also maybe the most dangerous (the only place where someone managed to steal something from me... it was my D70...)
      I love Rio...
      incredible city!!!
      about the treatment, this is Ilford B&W film processed in my dark room then scanned, very few photoshop just to put the right amount of black...

      Wonderful photo, and excellent background info provided by Gabriel Stefanini. It's such a jarring sight to see such sweet happy children throwing gang signs, but from what I have heard this is simply the truth about Rio.

      I like so much this album of South-America with these sweet children in the street.
      However in Brazil many kids are unhappy, drugged, abusec, exploited and kills by special commando for empty Brazil of these thiefs and loutish...:(((((((((
