Photographer's Note

In Brazil, when a people reaches the college, after so many effort, they are "received" by their older colleagues and a very old tradition begins.

TROTE is a mix of joke, humiliation, party and sometimes violence. Victims are painted with eggs, floor, ink and sometimes excrements; they have their hair cut,are obligated to make fool things or to drink beverages and stay in the streets asking for money. In the last decades Brazil have heard about violent Trotes and some people were killed during this time, when some violent guys used their power like crazy barbarians.
Here is a not violent trote, guys were enjoying they happiness to reach college.
