“Eight years ago sixty families occupied the “Galpao da Araujo Barreto”, an abandoned chocolate factory in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil. Prior to establishing in this place, these families lived throughout the dangerous streets of the city. In 2003, these families came together to seize this deserted factory, which lay in ruins, and they transformed it into a home.
Here a boy drug dealer sells inside the chocolate factory. The levels of drug use and related violence are increasing among youths in the community.”
Salvador de Bahía, Brazil, 2009-2011
