Cristina de Middel - Sharkification, Editora Madalena, 2015, São Paulo

 

Hardcover, limited edition with 15 x 20 cm print (edition of 100 copies, numbered and signed on print envelope an print verso), design by Mariana Lara Resende.

"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."
