Rio, Part III: In the Favela

Here are some pictures I took last month of life in the favela. These people were there to visit the medical clinic we were hosting, which was in the favela of Dende on Governor's Island. We were there for five days, with a pediatric and dental clinc, a pharmacy and an eye clinic, which is where I worked (can you say 'precisa de oculos'?) All are shot on my Canon A-1, using Ilford 400 B&W. See more ahead:

In Rio, the slogan is "BASTA", which means 'enough'. Thanks for looking.
