Two young boys pose for a photograph behind the chain link fence surrounding a concrete football pitch in the Santo Amaro favela, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The favela has not been pacified and is one of the less well known of Rio's favelas. A heavily armed police presence was inevidence and there was no trouble of any sort while we were there. According to our guide, Patrick Ashcroft, a teacher and research worker who lives in the favela, violence is rare in this favela. Photo by Andrew Tobin/Tobinators Ltd
