Photographer's Note

I don't intend to ofend anyone, but this is reality, this is daily life in Rio, zillions of homeless children spread on almost every traffic light, begging for some coins, juggling balls to attract attention. The sad thing is that not even attention they get anymore. People close their car windows, increase their radio volume, and look elsewhere, waiting for the green light. They are kids, average 6 to 12 y.o., and somehow it seems they scare people (?!). It comes back to the same old problem, people think it isn't their job, government says it's hard to solve, violence grows, little cuttie dogs are well fed at home, and kids, at the age to play, scare people while trying to make a living...
