I when I talked about the Nacho’s job done in the slum and have told my own story, I speak of the sensitivity that he had to do it.
Here in Brazil, the press does not care about it.
Besides I having lived in this situation, I continue to make a photographic documentary makes 10 years and I know whereof I speak when I congratulate the work done …
Really, I do not understand his violent message.
And more one time, congratulations to Nacho and Reuters for this job…
Sorry my english, for don’t be very good

In showing one of the many positive aspects of the people who live within the community, one realizes the importance of hope.

both missing in the article

By: redgrass Sun, 18 Sep 2011 00:47:22 +0000 wake up lady…
you will never understand it this reality
your touristic view of favela
is just how the rich sees Africa or other poor nations
is how westerners see the poor …
as an exotic class, with odd habits.

give them education , work , health accesss and care
and they would be exactly like you
wake up Lady, and smell the coffee

stop with this narrow, patronising convenient painting of this harsh reality …

shame on you

By: Anderson. Thu, 15 Sep 2011 15:40:37 +0000 Great job!
I know Nacho and some things we did together.
I, as a local, I confess that I have difficulty to approach as much as I want and know more about, having lived the reality of substandard housing. Usually the press in Brazil shows only the crimes and misfortunes of a slum, never shows that there also exists the possibility that there is life and find happiness there. Today, I don’t live more in this situation. I am a photojournalist, born poor family and because of this, I seek to live differently, not depress me to see some things that actually, this is absolutely impossible because it exposed the naked eye for all of us.
Congratulations to Nacho and Reuters for this work that much, it differs from the Brazilian press coverage about the slums.
