Wasteland by Vik Muniz

I LOVE this project by brazilian artist Vik Muniz. He has worked with the people working at a huge garbage dump in Rio and together with them made art & portraits of all the junk.
When I was in Brazil the film was just released so I saw it in portuguese. Understood about half of it! I love when art is combined with social issues and responsibility, and when there is human interactions what change people's lives - like in this case. You should definately see the film!! And read more about him in The New York Times!
