This is the Lencois Maranhenses National Park. It is located in northeastern Brazil in the state of Maranhao. It has many large sand dunes that occasionally flood but is very flat and low. In spite of rain that is abundant there is practically no vegetation. However, it does have beautiful green lagoons. The park was created on June 2, 1981.

People do the most unusual jobs in order to make their living. For example, this 39-year-old Brazilian fisherman Jose Benedito spends his days crawling in the mud surrounding mangrove roots on the coast of Para State and hunting for crabs. His job can’t be called a “dream job”, that’s for sure.

Where would Brazilian drug dealers hide? They would hole up in the most dangerous slums in Rio. This was what Rio de Janeiro policemen reported. So they held a raid on the shantytown of Alemao after they asked drug traffickers to surrender who, of course, refused to give in. Nearly 200 people have been arrested or detained, and more than 96 buses and cars have been burned during this operation in Rio de Janeiro, the city that will host the final match of the 2014 World Cup as well as the 2016 Olympics. Inside this post, you can see the photographs that show the operation itself, the reaction of local residents on a drug war and a house of an alleged drug trafficker that looks luxurious compared to ordinary buildings in the Brazilian favelas.

Actually it’s more like a brawl. The game was between China and Brazil. Apparently the brawl broke out when the Chinese coach called a foul. That was enough to clear both teams benches and the fists started flying. China eventually apologized over the incident.

Many people call Rio de Janeiro one of the world’s most violent cities. Why? You can see everything yourself, because the gangsters’ paradise has been documented by photographer Joao de Carvalho from Portugal. He took many pictures of local drug traffickers and gangs who are often the bosses of communities where Brazilian state does not exist. At the age of 18 these guys provide neighbors with many basic needs, including food and medicines.

Incredible photo essay of a photographer Luiz Santos who made this project in order to show the situation of women in Brazil prisons and their children that live with them in prison and who are exposed to “violence, drug use and poor hygiene.”

A prisoner has arrived one day prior my first day in the prison. On visit days she is kept locked in a small pavilion as she does not have friends or relatives in town. Some prisoners are from distant villages and relatives cannot afford to travel to the prison. Some others are simply abandoned.

That’s the crazy project of Gabriel (20) and Tiago (27) Primo, 2 brothers living in Rio de Janeiro - they are sleeping, working, eating, well… living on the side of a building 33 feet up in the air.
And that’s not just for a day, they’ve been doing that since the end of May and they plan to continue this weird adventure until August 20.
In fact, it’s a part of an art exhibit in Rio’s old center, and what an exhibition! You don’t see that everyday, so if you’re in Rio this summer, don’t forget to go and see this colourful living wall.

Capoeira (68 pics)

Posted by sym in Pictures 12 Mar 2009   / 28022 views

This is my favorite martial art of all. It’s very physical, rhythmic and simply beautiful.
Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form that makes a ritual of movements from martial arts, games, and dance. It was brought to Brazil from Angola some time after the 16th century.
I made a big selection of pictures that I liked the best. More of them you’ll see after the jump.
