In Rio de Janeiro, as in the whole Brazil, the level of recycling is very high.
This car was a taxi that fell inside a muddy water, because it was covered in mud. But even so it was brought to a garage, placed in the street, and every time some part was needed, it would be taken from it.
Last year I spent 3 months in Rio de Janeiro for my photographic project.
Rio is a very intense city. As I was exploring the Spontaneous Urban Texture, I went many times to this place to take a photo of this spot, with some human combination.
Then, after many days, it happened. I saw these 2 women at the sidewalk nearby. One was comforting the other.
They didn’t seem to care of my presence taking their photos and carried on their interaction.
I was sitting down on a bench at Rua Uruguaiana, when this guy came for his daily show. I was carrying a Hasselblad, he saw the camera and make some jokes, telling that I was using a water tank to take pics. Then he asked me to take his picture, so I did. He made then this very feminine pose, while everybody was laughing while he made the pose and joke about my camera.
