As the World Cup comes to an end this week I thought I’d post a few more photos from the series that I produced on the construction of the stadiums. One thing that struck me, in addition to the friendliness of the construction workers, was the prevalence of religious belief, which shouldn’t really have surprised me having lived in Brazil, and visited many times. Anyway, I was still surprised to see it on a construction site. https://wraphael.wordpress.com/2011/04/07/religion-in-vargem-grande-do-sul/
Construction workers worked for long shifts in hot humid conditions.
Photos taken in March and April 2012.
