Basketball in Rocinha

Boy playing basketball, Rocinha, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Close by the main road in Rocinha, there is a youth sports center. While the other boys were running around laughing and playing tag, this young boy had his hands on a basketball and wouldn't be disturbed for anything. He was focussing so hard his tongue was sticking out.

Photo taken during the guided tour I took through the Rocinha favela in Rio de Janeiro, January 2003.
