Reporter sem Beira

Annelies Vaneycken is a Graphic Designer from Belgium. With her project ‘Repórter sem beiras’ (Reporter without boundaries) she explores the slums to find out their true identity, which, right now is lost by the negative image. Through Atelier Favela she is getting to know the inhabitants of the favela of Fogueteiro. She's looking for "visual" stories where she puts herself in the position of translator, to show them to the outside world. With this project she hopes to open eyes of the Brazilian middle and upper classes, and to the rest of the world.

Annelies also helped the youngsters of the Bolsa de Bota in the graphic design process of the label of their bag.
