Peter Bauza, 'Eduarda' 2017 Editions print
World Press Photo Foundation Editions offers visual journalism fans a chance to own and display work from their favorite prize-winning photographers.
This photo by German photographer Peter Bauza shows Eduarda, who lives with seven siblings in one of the abandoned apartment blocks in Campo Grande, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Millions of people in Brazil live without secure housing. Government-backed social housing schemes, aimed at reducing an estimated shortage of 5.24 million homes in Brazil, have had limited impact. Some 300 families live in a neighborhood in Campo Grande, in the western zone of Rio de Janeiro, squatting in derelict apartment blocks: the remnants of a failed middle-class housing development of 30 years ago. Residents call the quarter ‘Jambalaya’, after a TV show, or sometimes ‘Copacabana Palace’ after a luxury hotel. Like many favelas and slums across the country, the quarter lacks basic infrastructure and living conditions are poor.
