RIO DE JANEIRO DEATH SQUADS

These photographs were taken in the mid-1990s for the French photo agency Vu. During several weeks, I followed some of the many families who were victims of death squads that murder for hire in the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro. Among them were families who had been victims in massacres that marked the news of that period, especially in Acari and Vigário Geral slums. The photos were recently published on the online magazine Lens Culture. More here.
