The theme of water keeps making my mind think about where I live. I live in São Paulo, one of the biggest cities in the world, and the city has one of the most polluted rivers in the world - Tietê. I decided to make a series of ten images, that are not "beautiful" in fact but are the reality where I live, I don't intend to receive any prize with them, but I think it is important to show and ask for HELP(To our politicians and governors). I will try to bring some "artistic beauty" from the pollution, but sometimes it is not possible, it is real.
