#insideoutproject in Sao Paulo, Brazil
11 Portraits - April 2014
Their Statement: HAITIANS IN SÃO PAULO : THE BROKEN DREAMS After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Brazil opened its borders to Haitians who had to leave families and friends for survival. Many migrated to São Paulo believing in the Eldorado of the financial capital of Brazil. After sometimes a difficult and risky trip via Panama, Ecuador and Peru, they struggled with the harshness of the metropolis. What they found is a city expensive to live and hard work in construction business paid 2,00 USD per hour. They gather in Glicerio, where they remain invisible to most of us. Behind each of these eleven portraits, there is a unique story, a dream, an identity. Eleven artists from Brazil -Cynthia Castejon, Celso Gitahy, Davaca-, Argentina -Cabaio-, UK -Koe1- , Germany -Ebenholz- , Canada -Lily Luciole-, France -NiceArt, NoName Stencil, Arkane and Happy Fingers created their own interpretation of each portrait photographed.
