Our blog’s banner is a cropped section of a photograph taken by Tuca Vieira and it’s an image of the Paraisópolis favela in Brazil buttressing a wealthy district. It is not Photoshopped! Mr. Vieira took it after making several passes over the favela from a helicopter. His story of the photograph is found here, and his website is here. We are very grateful to Mr. Vieira for allowing us use of the image for our blog.
