THE PEOPLE’S CUP

This imagery delves into the largesse of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil by examining its actual impact on local communities and urban infrastructure in host cities around the country. Many Brazilians feel the government used the country’s love for the game to cover up increasing social inequalities and corruption on a mass scale. While the country welcomed the chance to host the World Cup, the entire production never fulfilled many of its promises to benefit the greater public good. Much of Brazil is still mired in poverty without access to quality education and other basic social services. The People’s Cup explores how the games actually affected Brazilians outside the bright lights and media circus in the stadiums.
