Cirandas II

Cirandas II, adds the violence children in the US have been exposed lately. It is  conceiveid through the eyes of Children`s Express, a group of young kids based in Oakland and New York, documenting the violent
histories their piers have
been living in the US.

​Cirandas is an extended project examining violence against children in Brazil and the United States. For several years, I have been collecting material on all aspects of children`s rights, and in February 1993, I spent two months in Recife, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro gathering material for Cirandas I, a word meaning the innocent play of children moving and singing in a circle.
