The “wonderful city” goes much more beyond the beauty of Post cards. A hard reality exists, of the people who work hard to put the city into motion. Much beyond the festivals of “450 Years”, the city of Rio De Janeiro has another side other than that of beautiful beaches of the south zone. The Exposition: Rio 450° shows this side in beautiful pictures produce by the photographers Carlos Júnior and Sandro Vox.
