About the Author

Author and photographer Douglas Healan Mayhew lives between New York City and Rio de Janeiro with his partner, Roberto, and their dog, Cairo. His interest in favela worlds began when he worked as a volunteer in the children's wing in one of Rio's largest public hospitals. He continues to work within the favela world context; his work emphasises social responsibility through community action and dialogue.

Amazing that these neighborhoods actually exist, especially in a modern city like Rio.
More amazing that a photo journalist can walk out alive.

The photos are good, and there is clear, well-written, accompanying text. The print is large and well constructed (good paper, sturdy binding, etc). I only wish it had a bit more variety in the photos -- specifically I wish it had more photos of people, of life, in the favelas, and not just streets and walls and "gatos".

Though I have yet to fully read the text (which may save this), to my eye the photographs are neither well reproduced print-quality wise, nor interesting. I'm as interested as anyone in the various ways people survive in the favelas, but I didn't need 30 photographs of crazily-wired electrical systems to get the point.
