"faces of crackland"

In this March 17, 2015 photo, Sancler Rodrigues, 32, poses for a portrait in an open-air crack cocaine market, known as a "cracolandia" or crackland, where users can buy crack, and smoke it in plain sight, day or night, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Rodrigues said he has been smoking crack for 7 or 8 years. I didn't think my old black shirt would look good in your photo, so I borrowed this from friend," Rodrigues said.
