The Wider Image: Clowning is serious business for doctor to homeless in Brazil's 'crackland'
Flavio Falcone, a psychiatrist, and Andrea Macera, who works as an actress and a clown, talk to a young man known as Nego Bala, 23, (center) who was born and raised in an area known as "cracolandia," or crackland, a dangerous wasteland of about eight blocks in the historic center of Sao Paulo, Brazil, February 9, 2021. "When I was born, crackland already existed. People need to stop blaming who is in crackland. When everyone was born, the evil already existed," Bala said. "Instead of stigmatizing crackland, why don't you invest in humanizing and helping these people?" REUTERS/Amanda Perobelli SEARCH "CRACKLAND PEROBELLI" FOR THIS STORY.
