Rio 2016. The reconstruction of the Maracanã

In 2012 I got permission to photograph the reconstruction of the Maracanã in Rio for the World Cup in 2014 and spent a few hours wandering around the construction site. As the stadium will host both the Olympic opening and closing ceremonies I thought I’d post some of the photos I took four years ago.
