Olympic Favela
by Marc Ohrem-Leclef
Ahead of the World Cup (2014) and the 2016 Olympic Games, the government of Rio de Janeiro has been removing thousands of residents of the 1.4 million people living in Rio’s shantytowns, of favelas, in an effort to reshape the city’s urban landscape. This book puts a human face on this story of eviction.

With texts by Marc Ohrem-Leclef, Itamar Silva (NGO iBase, Rio de Janeiro) and Luis Pérez-Oramas (Curator, Museum of Modern Art, New York). Photographs by Marc Ohrem-Leclef 88 pages, 67 photographs
