In The Eye Of The Storm

June 2013, peaceful protests over the massive costs of bringing the World Cup to Brazil are met with violent repression by the state. Mirroring recent events in Turkey, what had started as relatively small protests turned into massive mobilizations as a result of police brutality. Brazilian photographer Michel de Souza takes us into the heart of the protests - or eye of the storm as he puts it - in Rio de Janeiro. Through a video camera mounted on top of his stills camera, we get to see what happens before and after his stunning images. The results are powerful and deeply moving.
