From the project the heavens done together with @paolowoods /// grand cayman - kandra powery, 25, and her three children, kayla, 9, kaleb, 8, and janae, 2. the caymans, a thriving offshore financial center, is the fourth-richest country in the americas (gdp per capita) but has real pockets of poverty. 55% of the labor force is composed of non-nationals occupying both low-paying jobs in the service sector and high-end jobs in the finance industry. #cayman #offshore #financialcenter #caymanislands #finance #theheavens #tax #taxhaven #taxheaven #taxhavens #equality #poverty #rich #richness

From my project fathers /// florence, italy – paolo (46), enea (5) and sara (2) - paolo was born in holland, of a dutch mother and a canadian father, but, when he was only two months old, his family moved to florence, where he lived for 20 years before he started traveling the world as a photographer. for the last 15 years his home bases have been first paris and then haiti. it was on that caribbean island that he and his partner sabali conceived their first son, enea. about 3 years ago, paolo and his family came back to live in italy, in the city that dante called home, and that is where their daughter sara was born.
every day, enea and sara go to a special preschool, called “the preschool in the forest.” it is a place high up in the hills surrounding florence, a preschool where children play in the woods, walk around in the fresh air and learn to recognize plants and animals. paolo takes them there every morning on his bicycle, 15 km uphill on the way and 15 km coming back (downhill this time, luckily). “it’s one of the best moments of the day. we listen to music and sing as we slowly get further away from the city. plus, besides having a great time with my kids, it's one way to keep a little bit in shape!” #father #fathers #firenze #florence #bike #dante #biking #family #photography #downhill #workout @paolowoods

Berlin, germany - jonas hartlieb, 25 jonas was born and raised on rügen, a small island in the north of germany.four years ago he moved to berlin, to study pedagogy for 3 years.he wants to become an elementary school teacher, but he needs to study for five more years.he took a year off from school and he’s now working in a private kindergarten.he works from monday to friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.every day, even if it’s really cold, he brings the kids outside to play. he works 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. he gets eur 1,400 a month /// one’s first job is rarely forgotten. it is the beginning of adulthood, a rite of passage and a turning point. for numerous workers, only 30 years ago, the first job was often the only one, as people could remained in the same company for a lifetime, just being gradually promoted or slightly changing ones positions with seniority. in today’s scenario all is temporary, as the dream of a life position has forever vanished. usually the first job is the first of a long list that will follow. in the wake of the worst economic crises in modern history, where for many young adults there seemed to be actually no possibility for a first job at all, i explore the world of employment of today’s youth. i took photos in all the 5 continents where the global theme does not obscure, but actually heightens the local specificities. each one of the subjects whose portrait has been taken has an individual story that feeds into a larger narrative on how the world we live in is changing. from china to germany, from colombia to the u.s. we get a personal introduction to tomorrow’s workforce / #job #firstjob #work #working #youth #young #money #workforce

In rio de janeiro, sports are life and life is not a spectator sport. little playing fields steal back space from the asphalt and traffic circles, defying cars and buildings alike. they creep in amongst the steep and winding streets and are sketched into the golden sands that have made this city immortal. rain forests and granitic cliffs are a testing ground, where distinctions of gender, race or religion cease to exist. the differences between high and low are made level. kids from the favelas that cling to the hillsides come down into the city, losing themselves among the upper-crust bourgeoisie well-heeled from ipanema and leblon. a surfboard, a soccer ball or a skateboard is all it takes to make them indistinguishable. social background doesn't matter for the players of the flamengo basketball team portrayed in one of these pictures; difference sit sinks while when the girls from the brazil national synchronized swimming team, brazil national champions, float over the twirl in the water. sports blend favela boys in love with football, bikers rolling down the seaside and surfers resting on the beach, as those shown in these images. call it the miracle of motion - motion that changes perspectives and revolutionizes viewpoints, as in these photos, which provide a portrait of a city and its inhabitants as they have never been seen before. in brazil, the democratic nature of sports is, after all, guaranteed under the constitution. article 217 of the brazilian federal constitution, adopted in 1988, four years after the horrors of dictatorship had come to an end, describes sports as a social right, for which the state is, at least in part, responsible. whether as a consequence of its constitutional obligation or of an inclination to comply with its people's wishes, the most recent census of the state of rio, conducted in 2003, counted 155 stadiums, 1685 small playing fields, 367 swimming pools, and 39 athletics tracks. as recently as 2012, the local government spent 56 million reals (18 million euros) on social sports activities. / done with @edoardo_delille #rio #sport #brazil #drone #dronephotography

From my project fathers /// port-au-prince, haiti – ilio gezmeil (40), donalson (17), wisline (11) and mirma (2) -ilio was born and raised in chaotic port-au-prince, the capital of haiti. like most haitians, he didn’t go to school and he began working when he was very young. from age 15 to 30 he was a construction worker, but then he decided to change jobs and become a motorcycle-taxi driver, because he says he can earn a little more doing this. he starts work every day at 5 in the morning, driving customers around on his motorcycle until at least 8 at night. he isn’t at home much, so he spends very little time with his children. sunday afternoon is his only time off and he loves to spend it with them. they love for him to take them around on his motorcycle. “it's a little like working,” he says, “but doing it with my children is much nicer.” #father #fathers #haiti #portauprince #motorbike #dad #dads

From my project couchsurfing /// fani, 24 – jakarta, indonesia - looking out of the only window in the mini-apartment, the impression was of being inside a cement beehive. a stone's throw away, not twenty yards from where i stood, there loomed another gray building, identical to the one i was leaning out of. beside it rose another, then another and so on like a forest of concrete towers. not an exciting view, but certainly emblematic of jakarta's transformation. it has become a megalopolis of skyscrapers, each identical to the next and, inside, myriad tiny living spaces. fani, the couchsurfer who welcomed me into her home on a day of torrential rain, fits perfectly into this picture. 24 years old at the time of my visit, with a tiny three-room apartment on the 28th floor of one of these skyscrapers, fani lives an intense life as a trainee journalist, constantly immersed in the chaos of the city. although i was sleeping on the sofa in her sitting room, i almost never saw her in the mornings. she sets off for the newsroom before 7 a.m. every day and stays there until after dinnertime, pouring all her energy into her work. at the newspaper, they rely heavily on her enthusiasm to cover the dozens of things that happen every day. these consist mainly of terrorist attacks (fortunately, not all serious) around the city. the things she has seen are probably one reason why fani has developed an allergy to religion and conversations about faith. she was raised in a strict catholic family, but now that she is faced every day with the effects of fanaticism, she has become skeptical towards believers of any stripe. "religion makes human beings lose their humanity. it's harmful," she told me vehemently during the evenings we spent together, visiting various trendy bars and clubs. in fact, the only thing she believes in at the moment, other than work, is fashion. "what do i need to be happy? a pair of shoes," she tells me. if you step into the shoe-strewn chaos of her miniature bedroom, you’ll see that she must be a happy woman, indeed. @couchsurfing #jakarta #indonesia #religion #cement #traffic

São paulo, brazil - it's the first ballet school in the world where to dance professionally are just young people, especially girls, who are completely blind. founded 14 years ago by fernanda bianchini, a brazilian dancer without any problem of view, her school has become worldwide a point of reference. "it's incredible to see them dancing and judging by how they move, softly and perfectly coordinated, it is almost impossible to think they do not see. it's exciting and amazing at the same time", said the mayor of sao paulo, after their last show. in fact fernanda's ballet has performed already more than 100 shows in theaters all around south america and also went to new york after the soviet-born russian american dancer michail baryshnikov -that visited the school years ago - invited them to present their show in the main new york's broadway theatres. everything started in 1995, when fernanda created an association that started giving free lessons to blind dancers. from then on the success has been so enormous that miss bianchini has even patented his technique of dance teaching. in her school anyway there is non just place for professionals but also for amateurs. the age is not important, there are babies of 3 years old and mature women. the only condition is that they are all dancers in the dark! #brazil #saopaulo #dance #blind #dancing #ballet #eye #darkness
