Como você sabe, futebol no Brasil é quase uma religião. Então, apesar dos protestos nas principais cidades, esperava-se que a maioria das ruas estaria vazia durante os jogos do Brasil. Normalmente as jornadas de trabalho são adaptadas, pra que ninguém perca o jogo. Com a partida inaugural marcada pras 17h, o dia de trabalho acabou na metade da tarde. Pouco a pouco, forma-se uma hora do rush atípica, e logo as ruas ficam vazias. Sendo o país sede da copa, depois de mais 60 anos de espera, dava pra contar que a maioria das pessoas estaria em frente a alguma tv. Quer ocasião melhor pra fotografar em lugares supostamente “impossíveis”?

As you may well know, football in Brazil is nothing short of a religion. So, despite some protests in the major cities, it was expected that the majority of the streets would be empty during the matches Brazil was to be involved. Normally, the working shifts are adapted so no one misses the game. With the inaugural match at 17h, the working day ended halfway into the afternoon. Little by little, there’s an abnormal rush hour, and soon the streets are deserted. Being the host of the cup, after over 60 years of waiting, one could count on the majority of people being in front of some TV set by then. What better chance to photograph in supposedly “impossible places” than that?
