Not a mutiny (2014)
A 3D photographic essay about the garbage collectors’ strike, their protest banners, and part of the effects of their absence during the 2014 Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. After 8 days, large volumes of trash filled the streets. An agreement with the city hall ended the strike and established that the base salary of R$ 802.57 would increase to R$ 1,100.00 (+37%); the daily food ticket, from R$ 12.00 to R$20.00 (66%); with 40% additional for insalubrity. The final established salary was set at R$1,540.00. During the first days of the strike, authorities dismissed the movement as a “simple mutiny”.
