Her recent series “Mademoiselles” is an intimate exploration of Paris. Entering the home of strangers and asking them to take their clothes off in front of the camera is not an easy task.
How did Natasha Gudermane achieve that? Her answer: “I know some magic words that open many doors.”

Photographer Mario Tama has been photographing the communities affected by the five percent favela reduction plan in Rio.

Evictions and demolitions have been occurring in Rio favelas ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and Rio 2016 Olympic Games in spite of a housing shortage in the city. Rio’s housing and urban planning goals include a planned five percent reduction of areas occupied by favelas by 2016. Alternative affordable housing, generally on the peripheries of the city, is unable to meet demand and some residents complain they have not received adequate compensation for demolished homes.

TOP: RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - MAY 27: A bulldozer sits by where homes formerly stood in the Manguinhos community on May 27, 2014 in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. Residents from one section of the ‘favela’, visited by Pope Francis in July 2013, have been affected by construction from the improvement works project begun in 2008. A full sanitation system has yet to be built

MIDDLE: A man and woman gather next to the remains of demolished homes in the Metro Mangueira favela, located near Maracana stadium, on May 21, 2014 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The homes were thought to have been knocked down for a parking lot for the stadium, though that has yet to be built. The area has seen some people occupy certain dwellings.

When Brazil was announced host of the FIFA football World Cup 2014, all expected a big party. A country where football is a national passion, home of the jogo bonito. But a few days prior to kick off, the majority of the Brazilians are questioning the mega-tournament.
They point out excessive spending on new stadiums while funds are desperately needed to improve the public health system and education. Not to speak of public transport.
The World Cup in Brazil mixes passion with social protest.
