Award Winner | Photo of the Day | June 21, 2010
This photo was taken on an avenue in downtown São Paulo-SP, Brazil, which is elevated from street level, about as high as the second floor of a building. Residential buildings around this avenue, when it was built, lost value and people who lived in them lost their privacy. So the whole area has worsened. Indigents, drug addicts, criminals and people on the margins of society began to frequent the area. To take pictures with security in this region, a group of photographers, amateur and professional, under the supervision of a journalist, organized a photographic output for this purpose. The tour lasted about two hours and yielded excellent images.
