Scenes from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - SEPTEMBER 14: A man tends a garden on the site of a former garbage dump in favela Vidigal, on September 14, 2012 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. For decades, this spot was a dumping ground, but for 7 years, a few locals have been creating an eco park here. Favelas are informal settlements, traditionally without electricity, water and sewage services. This favela is gentrifying and attracting foreigners.
