Close up of Brazilian hillside Favelas, which are a common sight throughout Brazil's major cities, are home to millions of urban poor and rural migrants who leave the countryside seeking jobs. Many of the slums are plagued by violence linked to drug trafficking.
Street Artist J R Wins the TED Prize. The hills have eyes in this installation in a Brazilian favela. It's part of a larger JR project called "Women Are Heroes," with other works in Sudan, Sierra Leone, Kenya, Liberia, and elsewhere. LOVE this one!
