My favorite art! One of the "Meninos de Açucar" or "Crianças de Açúcar" - by Vik Muniz from Brazil. This series depicts children of workers cane plantations in the Caribbean, showing the paradox of sugar sweetness with the bitterness of their lives.
Vik Muniz originally from São Paulo, Brazil now lives + works in New York. Watch the documentary, WASTELAND, by Lucy Walker. It's about the Brazilian catadores (trash pickers) and the artist Vik Muniz.
