    DESCRIPTION

    Sharkification is about the “favelas” and the Brazilian government’s strategy to attempt to control them during the soccer World Cup by involving armed units. It created a militarisation of the communities, where suddenly everybody becomes a suspect. The shark metaphor aims to explain the dynamics into place. “I used the comparison with a submarine world to imagine that the favelas are a coral reef where there are predators…”  When most of the photojournalists keep trying to play with feelings, Cristina de Middel uses humour, which seems to be a more intelligent way to look at things and that helps people becoming more curious.
