After more than ten years living and working on a land, as sugar cane's workers,

they were surprised, banished from their houses in the midle of the night,

by helicopters and armed men. They lost everything.

Now they live on the border of the roads, in encampments,

waiting for a land and fighting for the Agrarian Reform.

It was my favorite picture from 2004.

 

I dedicate this to this friend, Eduardo da Costa, who invited me to join Flickr, and gave me much more resources to understand and develop my work in interactive ways . Thank you so much, my friend :)
