"I chose this image of the house in the countryside because it shows what Rio was like before it became built up. This shows the way it was, it reminds me of the places where I was born in Brazil. The landscape is pretty much the same. C.R.Verde is the city where I was born in the state of Gaias." Edson Oliviera

"This photo is a vision of what I always imagined Rio to be. Upon seeing Rio it was full of beauty, colour, excitement and life. My most memorable experience was seeing people less fortunate than myself making the best of things. Seeing people make the most of things when there's little work and high unemployment reminds me how fortunate I am." Walter Morrison
