Roma Interiors

Gypsy Interiors is a series of portraits capturing the private world of these outwardly loud, vivacious people. Here he finds a rich and profound intimacy, hidden but exhibited among antique furniture, tapestries, paintings, religious images, china, staircases and mirrors, set into large rooms or sometimes minimized in empty spaces waiting to be filled. Images of women sitting on elegant sofas or portrayed during intimate family moments, young people lounging on beds in their luxurious rooms, elders immortalized amongst their mementoes, proud faces of parents admiring their children. These are portraits of a people wanting to show that they have finally succeeded in finding and forging a place and a dignified future within our society, without losing the gypsy values, handed down orally, that come from the hearts of their ancestors.

The Other Side of Rio

Since losing its capital status to Brasília in 1960, Rio has been in decline; investment dried up, brains and businesses fled to arch rival São Paulo, and violence became endemic. The number of favelas grew exponentially, and everything from traffic violations to murder seemed to go unpunished.

Since October 2009, when Rio won its bid to hold the Olympics, authorities, spurred on by progressive Mayor Eduardo Paes, have retaken control of several high-profile favelas, sending in battalions of special-operations police to remove the traffickers and then installing a community-based presence called Pacifying Police Units, or UPPs by their Portuguese initials.

So far, 17 UPPs have been set up in 68 different communities, and the results, according to the government, have been overwhelmingly positive. However, the residents can’t wait that long for health, education, water, infrastructures, transport and, most crucially, employment opportunities. There has been no real investment and little in the way of public services, and authorities must provide the same services, jobs and opportunities as the rest of Rio, and doing that requires more utilities and private enterprise.
