Projection of the photographic series "Rio Baile Funk" during a "Funk event, here in favela Santa Marta, South area of Rio de Janeiro. After years documenting and photographing the bailes funk (funk balls), it seemed only fair to show this work where it actually took place..Santa Marta's favela is experimentally occupied by the military police (UPP project) since early 2009, after 30 years of domination of the drug dealers & gang war..Despite of the recent new "security", Baile Funk remain prohibited. This slideshow took place during a Funk event / protest organized by the APAFUNK association, struggling for the legalization and recognizing of the Funk Carioca culture..
