Editorial Reviews


To prep for the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games, officals in Brazil ordered the destruction of large swaths of Rio de Janeiro's favelas, which more than a million people call home. This book document sthe displaced residents and their defiance, symobilized in emergency flames raised like anti-Olympic torches. (Debbie Grossman American Photo)

This volume looks at a different side of Brazilian life- it explores the favelas, where the poorest of the poor live in informal settlements with few amenities, from which they are being driven by officialdom as their country prepares for the Olympic Games. Ohrem- Leclef posed many of them with Olympic-esque emergency torches in their neighborhoods. Many of them are being paid to leave their neighborhoods or being pushed out less ceremoniously. (Lorna Koski

Marc Ohrem-Leclef, whose photography book Olympic Favela (published by Damiani) features portraits of those threatened with eviction. In 2012 and again last year, the German-born, Brooklyn based photographer traveled with his medium-format camera through Rio's various (sometimes dangerous) favelas to document the impact on the local population of what officials call "pacification." (Cooper Arnie
