Sebastian Gil Miranda Takes Photos In The Most Dangerous Parts Of The World (NSFW)

Sebastian Gil Miranda takes photos of sport social projects in some of the toughest and poorest places on earth.

Sebastian Gil Miranda is a photojournalist. Born in France, he now lives in Argentina. He spends his time snapping images of places many people fear to tread. The Favelas in South America, the earthquake and poverty-stricken Haiti. A myriad of disaster zones.

Miranda focuses on social projects that are mending broken lives and giving people hope. In a series called “Shoot Ball, Not Gun”, for instance, he visits some of the roughest, gang controlled areas on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. He shoots images of kids playing football in one of the toughest regions on the continent.

Basically, Miranda’s been around the block and has taken us in his backpack. In his biography he talks about his work:

My challenge as a documentary photographer, is to try to make active works with responsibility and conscience, that not only show a reality, denouncing a problem, but also allow for a social action. The power of images for positive changes. I think the only perfection is imperfection in the right measure, a right balance between lights and shadows.

I’ve never been into any sports myself, I’m too fat and lazy, but I can’t deny that sport seems to bring people together, even if their outlook is bleak.

The photos below are a selection of his work from Africa, to Cuba, to South America and beyond. The old saying “a picture speaks a thousand words” seems pretty appropriate for a lot of these images. Take a look:
