Thank you Bloomberg Businessweek for spreading the word on the risks involving tailing dam's in Brazil, and for choosing aerial my images to show different dams throughout the State of Minas Gerais.

And thank you to Visura for the incredible support to my work. With your help, this project has been reaching a very important audience, allowing more than 5 million people, that are affected by mining in Brazil, to have their voices heard.
