46750 is a visual account of the Rio de Janeiro last decade, a portrait of the so-called “wonder city”, with all its contrasts and complexities. 46,750 is also the number of homicides that occurred in Rio de Janeiro’s metropolitan area during the decade between 2007 and 2016, the time during which João Pina worked there; that’s an average of 13 homicides per day.
Over the years, material from this body of work has been published in outlets such as The New Yorker, Stern Magazine, El Pais Semanal and The New York Times, awarded Estação Imagem 2017, PDN Photo Annual 2010 and been a finalist for the Henri Nannen Preis.
