street view

Last week I’ve been playing around with street photography, nothing very elaborate, I just went out with the camera and photographed, above all, the way that I make by bus between my house and the subway station. The social inequalities and urban infrastructure of this displacement never cease to amaze me. To tell the truth I always have bad thoughts when I go this way, wondering why we live like this, or what I can do to change this reality. The answers, unfortunately, do not appear easily and almost always I have the feeling of lamentation. The reality of my city and my country is very hard. Shooting during this journey has been a way to avoid bad thoughts and create a certain pleasure in the midst of this urban and social chaos. In fact, in this series that I present here not all the images are of this route, some are of the city center. Soon I’ll prepare a more elaborate series about what it’s like to live in a favela in Rio de Janeiro. Nor is it a very original work given that it is a subject much approached in photography, but since I am a neighbor of one of the largest favelas in the country, Rio das Pedras, a community that lives around eighty thousand people, I believe I can make a contribution on this subject.
