15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
The Modern Manaus, as it is known the port area of Manaus is full of charms, mysteries and dramas. In the port of Manaus the Amazonian cultural meeting takes place. Ribeirinhos from various regions around there pass by every day, either arriving with their fish for sale, people going to meet the fishermen and travelers who arrive at Manaus or say goodbye. On the other side, the social abandonment of so many elderly people have through the streets of downtown is portrayed. The lack of a more humanistic policy makes it clear the social disparities that the Brazilian faces.
