This series presents the children of the first generations of crack users in Brazil and specifically in Belo Horizonte, the city where the photographer lives.
Children exposed to use during pregnancy are now users of the same drug that condemned their parents and thus condemn the next generations. Accumulated in cities and in larger and larger groups, they no longer remain invisible.
Women who, due to their state of addiction, deposited their dignity and future in the streets. This is the case of Bárbara, 27 years old,15 hospitalizations and 8 children abandoned to their fate.
