Mare slum

The Mare slum complex, home to about 130,000 people and located near the international airport, is the latest area targeted for the government’s “pacification” program, which sees officers move in, push out drug gangs and set up permanent police posts. On the week following the initial invasion by military police, more than 2,000 Brazilian Army and Navy soldiers moved into the slum complex with armored personnel carriers and helicopters in a bid to improve security two months before the start of the World Cup.

    Sensacional. Um olhar que mistura arte, técnica e sensibilidade.
