Project Morrinho

Now for something a little different... Project Morrinho is a community project based out of the Pereira da Silva favela (slum) in the Southern Zone of Rio de Janeiro. Local people and children build miniture urban landscapes as escapism from the harsh realities of violence and corruption that is often associated with the region.

As part of London's South Bank Festival Brazil, the project has a prime spot on the South Bank building a landscape inspired from the tower blocks of Lambeth to the backstreets of Rio.

This photo was taken during the construction. Walking past each day seeing the progress was fascinating and I'm looking forward to updating you with a finished image soon.
