Photographer's Note

Here a photo of the city where now I owrk and live. Macaé is located in the North of Rio de Janeiro State. The city is famous by it petroleum extraction. However the city is not like Dubay for my sadness.

Macaé was in the past a city focused on agribusiness and fishing. However after the discovery of presalt pretroleum reserve, today most part of the city is related with this new industrial area. But besides the great amounts of money the city don't grow up as it should.

Many social economical problems was generated by this oil industry including high levels of apartament rent, high cost of life and increase of poverty. Problems if energy and water supply normaly occurs. And with the high increase of population (200% of increase in 10 year) violence if growing too.

I hope in a near future many of this problems like that could be solve and the city could grow better then now.

In the photo the C Street, one of the street that link the neightborhoods of Gloria and Riviera at night before rain.
